The Liberating Power of Storytelling

Maziar Bahari is an Iranian-Canadian journalist, filmmaker, and activist. Bahari uses storytelling to educate others about their rights, and the Iranian government saw this as a threat. After Bahari was imprisoned by the regime in 2009 for his work, he decided to found IranWire and Journalism Is Not a Crime upon his release to expose the censored stories of citizens and incarcerated journalists to the public. In his talk at the 2018 Oslo Freedom Forum, Bahari uses art and his experiences in prison to raise awareness and speak out against the Iranian government.
