A Conversation with Haleh Esfandiari Program I

Jan 28, 2008 to Feb 03, 2008

Haleh Esfandiari and Shaul Bakash

 

Tensions between nations lose their quality of abstraction when an individual's fate is caught up in them.

Despite a scholarly dedication to improved communication between Iran and the U.S., she was treated as a threat to the Iranian state. The ordeal was not only a political incident and a personal challenge, it was a profound burden for her family. Here Haleh Esfandiari and her husband Shaul Bakash explore the personal costs of what became a major international case.
