Maziar Bahari: Rosewater: An Iranian Odyssey PastWednesday, March 23, 2016 ,
On June 21, 2009, just nine days after Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was re-elected in a highly contentious election, the Revolutionary Guards arrested award-winning Canadian-Iranian journalist and filmmaker, Maziar Bahari, in his mother’s home in Tehran. For the next 118 days, he remained imprisoned in Iran’s notorious Evin prison, where he was severely beaten, and accused, among other things, of espionage and plotting a velvet revolution. Rosewater is a riveting, on-the-streets account of the contentious elections, and the tale of a reporter willing to risk everything to tell a story. This lecture is co-sponsored by the Penn State Berks Muslim Students Association.
