Elizabeth Warren’s son-in-law, with whom she is close, produced a film backed by the Islamist-run Iranian government, according to the new Peter Schweizer book Profiles in Corruption.
The film, called The Song of Sparrows, was solely produced by Sushil Tyagi, who is married to Warren’s daughter Amelia.
Directed by Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi and described as his “most religious” film, “the movie’s chief investors included none other than the social deputy of the State Welfare Organization (SWO) of Iran as well as the Cultural and Artistic Organization of Tehran,” Schweizer wrote.
Both organizations are “funded and controlled” by the Iranian government, Schweizer said.
The Cultural and Artistic Organization of Tehran has also funded and distributed events like “Quds Day” in Iran, which is devoted to the destruction of Israel and involves large crowds chanting “Death to America” and burning effigies.
The credits of Tyagi’s film include thank yous to many Iranian government organizations, such as the “Iranian Revolutionary Guards Air Force.” The Iranian Revolutionary Guard has been designated a terrorist organization by President Donald Trump.
