Posted By on Thu, Nov 13, 2014 at 9:24 AM


First-time director Jon Stewart's Rosewater premieres locally tonight, Thursday, Nov. 13 at 7:30 p.m. at the Elmwood Palace 20, 1200 Elmwood Park Blvd. The one-time special screening includes an additional program called Rosewater: Jon Stewart & Stephen Colbert Live. Colbert hosts the live interview (tape-delayed in our time zone) with Stewart and Maziar Bahari, whose real-life experiences inspired the film. Bahari is a British-based journalist who endured a 118-day imprisonment by the Iranian government when he returned to his native Iran in 2009 to cover the presidential election for Newsweek.


More info and tickets are available here. Regular local showings of the film begin exclusively at the Elmwood Palace on Friday, Nov. 14.
