The tension is rising every day between Iran and the international community.

The stakes of this tension: the Iranian nuclear program.

For almost 20 years, the Islamic Republic of Iran has been suspected of building its capacity to control nuclear fire. Why did Iran arrive there?

What are the political and strategic reasons that led the Shah of Iran, then Ayatollah Khomeini and his successors to challenge the international community and its immediate neighbors by getting closer, year after year, to the Atomic Bomb?

And how did Iran do it?

The film will investigate it from US support to ultra-secret links with Pakistan’s AQ Khan nuclear proliferation network, from diplomatic delaying tactics to globally sensitive material trafficking, from the secret western war to open war threats.

Does Iran have the bomb? And if it has it, what will be the consequences of a nuclear Iran? “Iran, the bomb at all costs” brings its answer to these questions that obsess today capitals around the world.

Gilles Cayatte

Born in Neuilly-sur-Seine in 1962, Gilles Cayatte was first and foremost a film-lover, but soon caught up with reality. He practiced all the television professions, in order or disorder, chief editor (long), cameraman (a little), journalist (very little), producer, and finally director. His work is eclectic, as are his tastes. He passes from aeronautics to sport, from sociology to politics to the denunciation of injustices, wars and repressions. Most of his films have been hailed by the press, and many awards have marked his career. After making about fifty documentaries around the world, he is also interested in fiction today. He is elected to the board of directors of the Scam (French Author guild).
