Roxana Saberi - Hollywood (November 2, 2009)

Roxana Saberi - Hollywood (November 2, 2009) - by QH

Roxana Saberi made an appearance at the AFI Film Festival at the premiere of "No One Knows About Persian Cats". She co-wrote the film with her boyfriend Director Bahman Ghobadi. The movie was not authorised by the Iranian government.

Like Haleh Esfandiari, Saberi is in the process of writing her memoirs of interrogation and captivity in Tehran's Evin Prison. It's an amazing story that one cannot believe either side of the story. That is because lying has become a habit in Iran. Everyone simply lies in order to survive.

Both Ghobadi and Saberi declined to comment on camera because it may jeopardize their future project.
