In 2009, journalist Maziar Bahari was held for months in solitary confinement in a Tehran prison after being charged with being a spy. He turned his real ordeal into a memoir, which has now been dramatized as "Rosewater," a new movie by Jon Stewart. Jeffrey Brown talks to Bahari and Stewart about appreciating how humor can humanize brutality and the importance of protecting press freedoms.
