English Pen presents a preview of ROSEWATER (15) + Q&A with Journalist Maziar Bahari (April 19th)


Tricycle Cinema, April 19th at 3pm.

Tickets and details here.


The Daily Show host Jon Stewart's directorial debut Rosewater was one of the most talked about items at last year's London film festival (read the Smoke Screen review here as well as an interview with Jon Stewart). Now ENGLISH PEN have arranged a preview of the film on April 19th at the Tricycle Cinema, along with an interview with the real-life subject of the film -  journalist and filmmaker Maziar Bahari, who was arrested under false charges while covering the elections in Iran and held in Evin prison, an infamous jail where dissidents and political prisoners are amongst the inmates. 

Maziar Bahari will talk about his experiences and his campaigning for press freedom in Iran after the screening in an exclusive interview with his friend, colleague and co-star, Channel 4 News International Editor Lindsey Hilsum.

Proceeds from the event will support English PEN’s work defending freedom of expression in the UK and internationally.  Tickets: £15
