St. Andrews Film Society Features ‘Rosewater’

December 10 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

(USA, 103 min., 2014, R). Directed by John Stewart, Rosewater is based on a true stroy about Maziar Bahari, a Canadian broadcast journalist who endured personal risk by sending footage of the street riots to the BBC and was subsequently arrested by police and brutally interrogated in prison for 118 days. An interview and sketch that Maziar did with a journalist on The Daily Show was used as evidence that Maziar was a spy and in communication with the American government and the CIA. The only distinguishable feature about his captor is the distinct smell of rosewater. With Bahari’s wife leading an international campaign to have her husband freed, and Western media outlets keeping the story alive. At the W.C. O’Neill Arena Theatre, 7:30 p.m. All welcome. Free Admission. Donations welcome. Call 529-4982 or 529-3629 for more information, or go to www.facebook.com/standrewsfilmsociety.
