SAT. 11/13: FREE THE HIKERS +
As many already know, East Bay residents (and UCB grads) Shane Bauer, Sarah Shourd, and Josh Fattal were arrested by Iranian forces while hiking in Iraqi border areas last year (Ms. Shourd has since been released). Their detainment is being exploited for political reasons in the current US/Iran standoff. We screen some clips about their predicament, and hear from close associates, including journalists David Martinez, Mark Brecke, and the “fourth hiker,” Shon Meckfessel. ALSO other shorts. Come early for a 16mm overview of Iranian history, "Land of the Peacock Throne".
*$7–$100 benefits the Free the Hikers org.
