CIGI invites you to join us for a screening of the 2013 documentary, Our Man in Tehran. The film documents, in painstaking detail, both the historic events leading up to the 1979 Iranian Hostage Crisis and the details of the rescue of six US diplomats that came to be known as "The Canadian Caper." Combining archival footage with interviews from a number of key individuals involved in the rescue, including former Canadian Ambassador Ken Taylor, Our Man in Tehran paints a vivid picture of, and gives valuable context to, the real-life events that would go on to inspire the Hollywood blockbuster Argo.

James Blight, CIGI Chair in Foreign Policy Development at the Balsillie School of International Affairs will introduce the film.
