The Vancouver Biennale kicks off its new CineFest LIVE program at the Vogue Theatre on Saturday, June 14 featuring Academy Award winning director Oliver Stone as he presents an episode from his newest documentary series “The Untold History of the United States”.
Throughout the day, he will hold a Master Class at SFU Woodward’s for film enthusiasts. Often controversial, always stimulating, both events promise to be a rare chance for the public to engage with one of the most provocative filmmaker of our time!
In a world of NSA surveillance and Edward Snowden, Oliver Stone continues to be one of the most relevant film directors of our generation. Don’t miss a rare chance to join him in conversation.
