THE THREE HIKERS
Directed by Natalie Avital
FILMMAKER IN ATTENDANCE THE THREE HIKERS tells two stories. One is the story of three Americans (Sarah Shourd, Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal) who went hiking in Northern Iraqi Kurdistan in July 2009, and were captured and held as political hostages by the Iranian Government for more than two years. The other is the story of their families’ unyielding and loving determination to secure their release. Knowing its happy ending makes the film no less compelling.
