As Iran nears elections in June, the government has launched renewed assault on the media with arrests, repression, and harassment. Join us for a special screening of Forced Confessions, a film documenting the history of this tactic in Iran, followed by a discussion exploring the political, social, and personal implications of criminalizing the press, along with the worrying trends under new governments in Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya.
