Based on a true story, Drama
Iranian-Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari was sent to Iran in 2009 to report on the country’s presidential elections and in doing so was witness to violence against young protesters. While covering their story, he caught the eye of the Iranian government and was accused of being a foreign spy. Imprisoned and interrogated for 118 days, a blindfolded Bahari could only identify his interrogator through his smell of rosewater. Based on Bahari’s memoir and directed by well-known comedian Jon Stewart, there are even moments of humour that arise from the plot’s darkest places. Gripping and heartfelt, the film is as much a demonstration of hope and belief in free speech as it is of anger towards injustice.
