Joint event with the Centre of International Studies and the Centre of Latin American Studies

‘There’s a revolution underway in South America, but most of the world doesn’t know it. Oliver Stone sets out on a road trip across five countries to explore the social and political movements as well as the mainstream media’s misperception of South America while interviewing seven of its elected presidents. In casual conversations with Presidents Hugo Chávez (Venezuela), Evo Morales (Bolivia), Lula da Silva (Brazil), Cristina Kirchner (Argentina), as well as her husband and ex-President Nėstor Kirchner, Fernando Lugo (Paraguay), Rafael Correa (Ecuador), and Raúl Castro (Cuba), Stone gains unprecedented access and sheds new light upon the exciting transformations in the region.’ From: http://southoftheborderdoc.com/

Following the film, the panellists will go on to discuss the following questions:

  • Is the documentary successful in giving ideas of Latin American commonalities and unity?
  • To what extent is Latin America facing similar social and political dilemmas and representing common ideological agendas?
  • Do the countries featured (mainly Venezuela, Argentina, Bolivia and Brazil) seem to be following a similar path politically?
  • Does the documentary provide a legitimate/fair vision of Latin America?
