When: Thu., Nov. 13, 7:30 p.m. 2014
Daily Show host John Stewart has written, produced and directed a feature film — and it’s not a comedy. The film is based on The New York Times best-selling memoir Then They Came for Me: A Family’s Story of Love, Captivity, and Survival, written by BBC journalist Maziar Bahari, who went to Iran to cover that country’s presidential election. The assignment resulted in Bahari’s arrest as a “spy” and subsequent torture and imprisonment over the course of three months. The film will be followed by a live Q&A session broadcast from New York, during which former Daily Show contributor and Colbert Report host Stephen Colbert will interview Stewart.
