PBS American Experience and The Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum, in partnership with Georgia Public Broadcasting, present an exclusive preview and discussion of the history series' upcoming documentary Taken Hostage.

Unfolding like a political thriller, Taken Hostage tells the story of the Iran hostage crisis, when more than 52 American diplomats, marines and civilians were held hostage at the American Embassy in Tehran on November 4, 1979. Former hostage and press attaché to the U.S. Embassy Barry Rosen, his wife Barbara, retired U.S. Army Colonel James Q. Roberts and filmmaker Robert Stone discuss the film and explore the history of America’s relationship with Iran as well as the Iranian hostage crisis with American Experience executive producer Cameo George.

The event will feature a 45 minute clip from the film and a panel discussion with film participants, and will be presented in-person, at the Carter Center's Cecil B. Day Chapel. Here's a sample of what you'll see.
