film stillIn the context of the war with Iraq, this documentary looks at the manifestations of Islamic fundamentalism on Iran.

To many in the west, the Iranian struggle is irrational and tragic, even perverse. This film allows Iranian peasants, clergy, and government officials to explain their uncompromising adherence to Islam. They justify martyrdom and the sacrifice of youth in the name of God and politics as being part of the unavoidable defense of their religion and spiritual dignity.

IRAN: ADRIFT IN A SEA OF BLOOD presents the Iranian people's vision - one not readily seen in the west - clearly, precisely, and compellingly.

"Highly recommended for student and adult groups desiring a better understanding of modern Iran."—Library Journal
