WORLD PREMIERE SCREENING IN OVER 85 LOCATIONS ACROSS CANADA OF A DOCUMENTARY BY MAZIAR BAHARI, THE REAL-LIFE SUBJECT OF JON STEWART’S FORTHCOMING FILM ROSEWATER
The Iranian government tries to stop the members of its largest non-Muslim faith community (the Baha’is) from teaching and studying at university. But they do teach and they do study in an underground university whose students have been accepted in over 100 institutions of higher learning around the world, including many in Canada.
When: February 28, 2 – 4:30 p.m.
Where: Program Rooms 1 & 2, Cornwall Public Library, 45 Second Street East
The screening will be complemented by participatory discussion and some first-hand testimony with input from three local professionals (lawyer Bernadette Clement, journalist Hugo Rodrigues and educator Paula Wheeler). The discussion will be moderated by Bernadette Clement.
