TIFF: DESERT ONE World Premiere in TIFF Docs

Director Barbara Kopple, who is a two-time Oscar winner, three-time DGA Award winner, and five-time Emmy nominee

It has been called “the most audacious, difficult, complicated, rescue mission ever attempted.” Desert One uniquely blends emotion and bravado to tell the incredible tale of America’s secret mission to free the hostages of the 1979 Iranian revolution.  Two-time Academy Award-winning documentarian Barbara Kopple discovers a wealth of unearthed archival sources and receives unprecedented access.
