Virtual Cinema            Past Event


Creative Migration was excited to present COUP 53, an explosive, new documentary as part of our Virtual Cinema programming.

The story of America and Britain overthrowing democracy in Iran in 1953, told in extraordinary detail using never seen before footage and documents. Brought to life with a unique and mesmerizing performance by Ralph Fiennes.

COUP 53 engages the public through the power of cinema to bring awareness on how the fossil fuel industry shapes our current world.
