Early Musical Instruments Video (DVD) is a documentary film taking a balanced look at the disturbing details of the 14-month standoff that resulted to radical Islam and its spread to world prominence and which forever changed United States attitude towards the Middle East. This documentary film about US-Iran standoff draws from archival footage—including earlier unreleased films from Iran—and frank interviews with the United States hostages and their Iranian abductors, to tell its story. In the Words of the U.S Embassy Communications Officer, he says in his experience of being held hostage it felt like being “raped.”
More interviews were done with top-level politicians, religious leaders, military personnel, and others. They tell the story of uncertainty, hardship, and frustration for all the victims. The 14-month USA-Iran conflict was only resolved with the release of the hostages in 1981. The documentary film about US-Iran standoff plays for 1 hour 43 minutes.
