OLIVER STONE WEEKEND

'Snowden', the latest film by director Oliver Stone, will open in Bangkok next week.

Stone's body of films has included box office hits (certainly 'Platoon' and 'Wall Street'), studies of the presidential system ('JFK', 'Nixon', and 'W') ,controversial films ('Natural Born Killers'), films that didn't quite hit as they should have (like 'Heaven and Earth'), a few that perhaps he'd rather forget ('Alexander'), and more than a few which will likely become classics ('Born on the Fourth of July')

To celebrate the release of his latest film, we will be showing three examples of Stone's work that you may not have seen before.

You can book at fgc.in.th/Bookings.html

SATURDAY 1ST OCTOBER

SALVADOR
1986
Dir: Oliver Stone

Whilst technically not Stone's first film as director, 'Salvador' is certainly the film that set the tone for his later work. It is a vivid and powerful political drama about a journalist covering the Salvadoran Civil War.

SUNDAY 2ND OCTOBER

COMANDANTE
2003
Dir: Oliver Stone

Stone and his film crew visited Castro in Cuba for three days in 2002, and the film was released in 2003, having its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival early that year. The film was partly produced by HBO and was planned for broadcast. Shortly before airtime, after Castro executed three hijackers of a ferry to the United States and imprisoned more than 70 political dissidents, HBO pulled the program.MONDAY 3RD OCTOBER

THE UNTOLD HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES
2012-2013
Dir: Oliver Stone

Oliver Stone re-examines important events of the last century of American history, through fresh eyes. 

We will be showing three episodes:

Episode 1 - World War II
Episode 7 - Johnson, Nixon & Vietnam: Reversal of Fortune
Episode 10 - Bush & Obama: Age of Terror

NB. We will be starting at 7.30pm.
