Rosewater is based on The New York Times best-selling memoir “Then They Came for Me” written by Maziar Bahari. In June 2009, Bahari returned to Iran to interview Mir-Hossein Mousavi, who was the prime challenger to president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. As Mousavi’s supporters rose up to protest Ahmadinejad’s victory declaration hours before the polls closed, Bahari endured personal risk by sending footage of the street riots to the BBC. Bahari was arrested by police, tortured and interrogated by a man identified as “Rosewater” over the next 118 days. With Bahari’s wife leading an international campaign to free her husband and Western media outlets keeping the story alive, Iranian authorities released Bahari on $300,000 bail and the promise he would act as a spy for the government.
