I was asking a few days ago why Oliver Stone‘s South of the Border, a reportedly flattering portrayal of Venezuela president Hugo Chavez that recently screened at the Venice Film Festival, wasn’t showing at Toronto. And then lo and behold I received an invite this morning to catch it on Wednesday evening (9.23) at the Walter Reade Theater. Stone will attend and do a q & a with Lincoln Center Film Society chief Richard Pena following the screening.
Bolivian president Evo Morales (interviewed in the doc) will also be there. It’s only a guess but it wouldn’t surprise if the Wall Street 2 team (including cast members Michael Douglas, Shia Lebeouf, Frank Langella, Carey Mulligan, etc.) would also attend in a show of support and solidarity for the boss.
