Using new archival sources and unprecedented access to key players including former US President Jimmy Carter and Vice President Walter Mondale, two-time Academy Award® winning documentary filmmaker Barbara Kopple reveals the true story behind one of the most daring rescue attempts in modern history: Operation Eagle Claw, a secret mission by US special forces with the objective of freeing American hostages captured during the 1979 Iranian Revolution.

Critic Reviews:

  • " Featuring an impressive breadth of interview subjects, there's a sense that the full story – or something very close to it – is being told in as objective a way as possible. " – Edwin Arnaudin (Asheville Movies)
  • " You can learn a lot more from your failures than your rah-rah successes. Barbara Kopple is of course a veteran [filmmaker] and does this brilliantly. " – Christy Lemire (FilmWeek, KPCC – NPR Los Angeles)
  • " Two time Academy Award winning filmmaker Barbara Kopple makes a film and you know that it is going to have several elements to it – excellence, education and entertainment. " – **
