Oliver Stone sets “South of the Border” Film Tour

By Roger Friedman

Oliver Stone is a busy man. On Friday, May 14th, he’ll debut “Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps” at the Cannes Film Festival.
But he won’t be sticking around Cannes for long.

Stone will take his documentary about South American dictators, called “South of the Border,” to Madrid on May 18th for its worldwide premiere.

Ten days later he’ll show “South of the Border” in Caracas, Venezuela, to film buff and evil dictator Hugo Chavez and other officials at a premiere in that country.

From there, Stone will be all over South America with the film, described as a “political road movie.” The tour includes the “first-ever film premiere” in Cochabamba, Colombia. (A red carpet always seems more official with machine guns!)

    I didn’t even realize he was making a political documentary. I’d be more interested in seeing that than the wall street 2 film.

    Is Brazilian president Lula da Silva a “dictator”, too? And Cristina Fernandez of Argentina, Fernando Lugo of Paraguay, Rafael Correa of Ecuador, Evo Morales of Bolivia? All “evil dictators”, I suppose.

    This is just the kind of ridiculous and baseless name-calling that makes such a film necessary, so that people can get a deeper understanding of what’s taking place in Latin America.
