documentary film on the 37 days of Shapour Bakhtiar's Premiership
as Imperial Iran's last Prime Minister.
This is truly A MUST SEE film.
Bakhtiar In the winter of 1979, as a collective madness
called the "Islamic revolution" was gripping Iran, there was
only one courageous voice willing to stand up to the
impending catastrophe that was about to befall Iran. In
that tumultuous atmosphere, Bakhtiar's call for peaceful
transition to democratic government, respect for the 1906
constitution, and above all separation of state and religion
fell largely on deaf ears. For more than 40 years of
political struggle, which began in the 1930's against
Spain's General Franco and Hitler's Nazi Germany, he was
steadfast on the principles of human dignity, political
freedom and social democracy. And he remained loyal to them
until his assassination at the hands of Islamic Republic in
August 1991. In reading this collection of Dr. Bakhtiar's
interviews, speeches and writings, one is moved by the
passion and commitment of his message, which was rooted
firmly in the secular humanism he tirelessly championed.
This site is dedicated to his life and times.
Cowards die many times before their deaths;
The valiant never taste of death but once
