Based on the book of the same name by author and journalist David Barsamian, TARGETING IRAN seeks to elucidate the myths and popular misconceptions surrounding Iran’s nuclear aspirations. Through interviews with eminent figures such as MIT’s Jim Walsh, National Iranian American Council president and author of A SINGLE ROLL OF THE DICE Trita Parsi, Noam Chomsky, veteran New York Times correspondent Stephen Kinzer, and David Barsamian himself, Portland filmmaker Andy Norris (SOURCE TO SEA: THE COLUMBIA RIVER SWIM) lays out the complexities of Iran’s history, sociopolitical strata, and strategic quandary.
