Oberlin alumna Norma Percy returns to her alma mater this week to screen Iran and the West, the acclaimed three-hour made-for-TV documentary film she’s made with the British production company Brook Lapping, an organization the Wall Street Journal has called “the Rolls Royce of documentary-makers.” Part One, dubbed “The Man Who Changed the World (1978-81)” focuses on President Jimmy Carter’s attempt to free the hostages taken at the US Embassy in Tehran. It shows at 7:30 tonight at the Oberlin College Science Center’s West Lecture Hall (119 Woodland St.) and will be followed by a question-and-answer session. Parts two and three, titled “The Pariah State (1982-2002)” and “Nuclear Confrontation (2001-present),” respectively, screen tomorrow at the same venue at 6:30 p.m. The screenings are free.
