A screening of "Forced Confessions" documentary by Maziar Bahari and Panel Discussion in Berkeley

Presented by Berkeley Lecture Series

Forced Confessions - A documentary directed by Maziar Bahari

A Panel Discussion by:

  • Mehrangiz Kar, Prominent Iranian Lawyer and Human Rights Activist
  • Hadi Ghaemi, Executive Director of the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran
  • Omid Memarian, Journalist and a Survivor of Forced Confessions

Film Synopsis:Forced Confessions pulls the mask off a regime that brutally extracts lies from its citizens. The film is narrated by Director Maziar Bahari, who himself was used as a “poster boy for subversion” and forced to falsely admit to orchestrating street protests in 2009.  This is the story of the Iranian regime’s attempt to legitimize its rule through force, and how the Iranian people continue to speak truth to power - whatever the cost."

Date:    Sunday, April 7, 2013
Time:    4:00 P.M.
Place:  101, Morgan Halll, University of California, Berkeley (maps)
