As the credits began rolling on Rosewater, the compelling story of journalist Maziar Bahari’s incarceration in an Iranian jail, I was kicking myself for not booking tickets for the follow-up Q&A with Bahari and Jon Stewart, the film’s director.
However, a quick walk through the rain and fifteen minutes in the returns queue and my patience was rewarded. A last minute ticket was mine! Only down side, no time to get dinner, so popcorn and Fanta will have to suffice (which only set me back a mere five pence more than my (proper) dinner at Hackney Picturehouse two days ago…)
It had better be worth it!
