*Synopsis: **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 N**ė**stor
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.*


*Since hitting the big screen, SOUTH OF THE BORDER has been generating some
·  FAIR's Peter Hart weighs in on right-wing journalists and their coverage
of the film and in particular the Larry Rohter of The New York Times.
·  David Corn in Mother Jones, 'Why the director's controversial new
documentary, South of the Border, is generating so much heat.'
·  FOX & Friends lashed out and attacked “South of the Border,” spreading

·  Activists in Los Angeles mobilized to counter a protest of the film
organized by the Venezuelan opposition -  Anne Thompson/Indiewire and Steve
Pond/The Wrap report.
