Iranian artist Shirin Neshat plans to shoot a film about the United States overthrowing a democratically-elected government in
Iran to gain control of the nation's vast oil supplies.
Ripped from today's headlines? Not quite.
The project is not based on the West's ongoing standoff over Tehran's nuclear program but rather on the U.S.
Central Intelligence Agency's first overthrow of a foreign government, 53 years ago.
But while the movie is set in the past, Neshat hopes it will reverberate in the present, showing Westerners how their role in history is partly responsible for the current state of affairs.
