Hey guys! Horrorella here...
In anticipation of its scheduled screening at the Toronto International Film Festival, Open Road has released two new images from ROSEWATER. The film is the directorial debut of Jon Stewart, and is based on the true story of a journalist (Gael Garcia Bernal) who was captured and imprisoned in Iran. He was held for 118 days while tortured on suspicion of espionage, before finally being released.
The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart makes his directorial debut with the true story of Iranian-Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari (played by Gael Garcia Bernal), whose appearance on Stewart’s show in 2009 precipitated his five-month imprisonment by the Iranian government.
The film is scheduled for theatrical release on November 7th. Here, we see a shot of Bernal during one of the interrogation scenes, as well as a shot behind-the-scenes shot of Stewart on set.
