Jon Stewart’s directorial debut Rosewater has a trailer. The adaptation of the Maziar Bahari book Then They Came For Me: A Family’s Story Of Love, Captivity And Survival stars Gael Garcia Bernal as Bahari, the BBC journalist who left London in June 2009 to cover Iran’s presidential elections. He was kidnapped, spending the next 118 days in Iran’s most notorious prison being brutally interrogated by a man he knew only by one thing: he smelled of rosewater. Stewart took a summer hiatus from his Comedy Central show to direct his own script and will premiere the film tomorrow at Telluride. (See the just-announced Telluride line-up here.) Rosewater then travels to Toronto before Open Road releases it November 7:
