Jon Stewart's "Rosewater" Trailer
For those that don’t know, Rosewater is based on the true story of Iranian-born journalist Maziar Bahari (played by Gael Garcia Bernal.) He returned home from the US to cover the national election, only to be arrested and jailed for nearly four months. Part of the charges against him stemmed from his appearance on The Daily Show where his satirical answers and jokes with Stewart were taken seriously.
The film’s world premiere was last Friday evening, August 29th, at the Telluride Film Festival.
