Host of 'The Daily Show' Screens, Discusses Directorial Debut

November 10, 2014 – Jon Stewart, left, host of Comedy Central’s "The Daily Show," and Maziar Bahari, an Iranian Canadian journalist and filmmaker, screened and discussed Stewart’s film directorial debut Rosewater in front of a packed audience at Georgetown’s historic Gaston Hall Sunday.

The film is based off Bahari’s memoir Then They Came for Me: A Family’s Story of Love, Captivity, and Survival, which recounts his 118-day incarceration by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards in Tehran’s Evin Prison in 2009.
