Stewart and Bahari Preview ‘Rosewater’ in D.C.
Jon Stewart, the host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” screened his new movie, “Rosewater,” at the Newseum on Nov. 9 and at Georgetown University on Nov. 10. Written and directed by Stewart, the film is based on “Then They Came for Me,” Iranian-Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari’s book about his 118-day incarceration by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards in Tehran. Bahari joined Stewart on his trip to Washington, with the duo discussing the film at both preview screenings. Released nationwide on Nov. 14, “Rosewater” is currently playing at the AMC Loews Georgetown and at Landmark Theatres’ E Street Cinema.
