Barbara Kopple at IFC Center for Desert One
Tuesday, February 11, 2020 at the IFC Center, Director Barbara Kopple and host Thom Powers will be present for a Q and A after the 7:30p.m. screening of DESERT ONE.
Kopple's film re-examines the American hostage situation in 1979 with a focus on the rescue mission. The director was able to use never before heard audio tapes from the White House. New interviews with hostages, rescuers, Iranians and even President Carter are part of the film. Carter's loss to Reagan in the 1980 election was influenced by this conflict in history.
The IFC Center is located at 323 6th Avenue, NY 10014. Accessible by the A,C,E,B,D trains. To reserve tickets, go here: www.ifccenter.com
