Maziar Bahari, born in 1967 in Tehran, studied film and political science in Canada before working both as a journalist and filmmaker.

No Matter What” (1999) and “A Refugee Experience” (2000) testify to Maziar Bahari’s abilities as a director. In his most recent film “And Along Came a Spider” (2002), he presents a portrait of an imprisoned serial killer who believes killing prostitutes reflects the teachings of Islam.
