In Details

 

Based on a Declassified True Story,  Warner Bros. Pictures’ and GK Films’ dramatic thriller ARGO chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, which unfolded behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis - the truth of which was unknown by the public for decades.  A plan so incredible, it could only happen in the movies.

 

Meet the man behind the true story of ARGO, former CIA technical operations officer Tony Mendez, and his wife Jonna, also an ex-senior intelligence officer!  A weekend in Washington D.C. has never been so revealing.

 

In a secure environment within the International Spy Museum, Tony and Jonna will provide a unique insight into the life of a spy and the story as it unfolded in real life.

 

An exclusive ‘show and tell’ of the weapons and equipment used in the assignment follows, offering an unusual and entertaining perspective into a government agency during times of crisis.
