South of the Border- Entire Film 1hr 18min

South of the Border from Alexandros Pavlides on Vimeo.

South of the Border is a 2009 documentary film directed by Oliver Stone. The documentary premiered at the ‎2009 Venice Film Festival. Writer for the project Tariq Ali calls the documentary "a political road movie". Stone stated that he hopes the film will help people better understand a leader who is wrongly ridiculed "as a strongman, as a buffoon, as a clown."

The film has Stone and his crew travel from the Caribbean down the spine of the Andes in an attempt to explain the "phenomenon" of Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez, and account for the continent's "pink tide" leftward tilt. A key feature is also Venezuela's recent Bolivarian revolution and Latin America's political progress in the 21st century. In addition to Chávez, Stone sought to flesh out several other Latin American presidents whose policies and personalities generally get limited, or according to Stone, biased media attention in the United States and Europe, notably: Evo Morales of Bolivia; Cristina Kirchner and former president Nestor Kirchner of Argentina; Rafael Correa of Ecuador; Raúl Castro of Cuba; Fernando Lugo of Paraguay; and Lula da Silva of Brazil.

Excellent example of what movements can succeed.

This is a great movie!! Not only does it show people standing up to institutions like the World Bank and IMF, but it shows what successful social movements look like and what they've been through. Hopefully we can learn from this as the 9/11 Truth movement and try to figure out new ways of succeeding ourselves in our efforts. Thanks again Joe for a quality submission. I've been wanting to see this film for some time.

UPDATE: Found Here

"This video does not exist."

I don't know if it's just on the Canadian side of the border, but it was taken offline...

This movie is really hard to find anywhere for evident reasons when you listen to it. It took me awhile to find it when I was looking for it a few months ago, but someone finally posted it on the pbay. I hope it is still there for those who want to download it, it is a very interesting film.... Brings propaganda into perspective!

It is not here now.

But, it was here briefly!


If you have a Netflix account, it's available on DVD or streamed. Worth seeing.

What Bush told the Argentinian president

Conversation between Oliver Stone and Néstor Carlos Kirchner, former president of Argentina, now deceased:

Néstor Kirchner
We had a discussion in Monterrey, I said that a solution for the problems right now, I told Bush, is a Marshall plan.

And he got angry. He said the Marshall plan is a crazy idea of the Democrats. He said the best way to revitalize the economy is war.

And that the United States has grown stronger with war.

Oliver Stone
War? He said that?

Néstor Kirchner
He said that. Those were his exact words.

Oliver Stone
Is he suggesting that South America go to war?

Néstor Kirchner
Well, he was talking about the United States. The Democrats had been wrong. All of the economic growth had been encouraged by the various wars. He said it very clearly.

President Bush is... Well he's only got six days left, right?

Thank God.

Clearly... Bush is a psychopath. Moreover.. the Democrats are no real opposition of any kind, as demonstrated by the continuation, and even escalation, by Obama, of various foreign and domestic policies initiated by Bush administration.
