On February 11, the Laurentian University Jewish Students Association hosted a showing of Iranium: The Movie. The movie, a documentary, educates viewers about Iran and its nuclear program with such figures as R. James Woosley Jr., former Director of Central Intelligence, John Bolton, former US Ambassador to the UN, and Dore Gold, former Israeli Ambassador to the UN as well as current president of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. In addition, the film gives a summary of the current Iranian regime’s actions towards the West. It also compares the current regime, which came about as a result of the 1979 revolution, to that of the Shah.
The students who attended this event watched the movie, got free food, and engaged in a discussion following the movie. Many of the students were sociology or political science majors, but the event did attract some science majors as well. The event was also a good pre-IAW event. As a result of the discussion, not only did people discuss the movie with everyone there, but people discussed the film later as well.
