"History haunts generations that refuse to learn history." - Arthur M. Schlessinger, Jr.
No region in the world is more clouded in mystery than the Middle East. Lifting the Fog uncovers much of the puzzling and confusing information surrounding the sector while taking viewers on a journey across a century of intrigue and a panorama of events and personalities that have left a permanent imprint on the area.
Lifting the Fog documents the little known history of the behind the scenes deals made between international power brokers and identifies the forces that have dragged the area into a perpetual state of conflict.
Beginning with the discovery of oil in 1908, through World War I and continuing into the Persian Gulf War, the film provides a sweeping account of the area's shifting dynamics. The striking use of rare footage, music and revealing interviews unravels history with a new sense of immediacy.
Lifting the Fog challenges our assumptions concerning this trouble region and provides audiences with an entertaining and informative excursion into the real Middle East.
