With Maziar Bahari and Jason Jones.

In June 2009, Canadian-Iranian journalist, playwright, and documentary filmmaker Maziar Bahari was among hundreds of people arrested following the disputed Iranian presidential elections. He was held for 118 days in Tehrans notorious Evin Prison. PEN and the Committee to Protect Journalists led an international campaign for his release, and are now working with him to draw attention to the many writers and journalists currently imprisoned in Iran. Shortly before he was arrested, Bahari filmed an interview with The Daily Shows Jason Jones, who had traveled to Iran to do a series of satiricaland poignantpre-election reports about the Iranian people, entitled Access to Evil. While in prison, one of the things Bahari was questioned about was the interview with Jones, whom his interrogators labeled a spy. We are thrilled to present this remarkable reunion conversation with Maziar Bahari and Jason Jones, about this tumultuous year in the Islamic Republic of Iran.
