The Three Hikers
Tuesday, November 10 7:30pm
Los Angeles Premiere
In 2009, when American hikers Sarah Shourd, Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal mistakenly wandered off the beaten path near Iraq’s poorly marked border with Iran, they quickly experienced the draconian consequences of their error. This gripping chronicle of the ensuing two-year prison ordeal for them and their families is an intimate, inspiring look at loving perseverance that sheds new light on the delicate diplomacy behind the trio’s release set against the backdrop of the complex geopolitical stalemate between the United States and Iran and the emergence of their crisis as an international news story.
The Three Hikers premiered at the American Film Institute’s prestigious documentary festival, AFI:Docs.
