Forced Confessions: An IranWire Documentary

Maziar Bahari’s 2012 film Forced Confessions pulls the mask off a regime that brutally extracts lies from its citizens – not criminals, but writers, journalists, and scholars. Bahari, who was forced to confess following his arrest in 2009, tells the story of the Iranian regime’s attempt to legitimize its rule through force. And, as the case of Jason Rezaian highlights, the regime continues to use this tactic to intimidate and isolate journalists for simply reporting the truth.
