Watch Official ‘Rosewater’ Trailer

[rrssb]

Iranian-born Canadian journalist, Maziar Bahari, is imprisoned and tortured on spy charges for 118 days after covering Iranian election in 2009.

Written and directed by Jon Stewart, ‘Rosewater’ is the story of Bahari’s ordeal, also recounted in his 2011 memoir ‘Then They Came for Me’.

Mexican actor Gael García Bernal plays Bahari, who in real life landed in hot water with the Iranian authorities partly because of a mock interview he did on Stewart’s show back in 2009. That segment was later used against him as evidence of seditious activity.
