April 13, 2011 – "South of the Border” an Oliver Stone Film

The Distinguished Brothers of Phi Iota Alpha invite all of TSU to a free screening of the controversial Oliver Stone film: South of The Border!!

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 mo...vements as well as the mainstream media’s misconception 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.

There will also be some time to reflect on the film and discussion will be lead by Dr. Paul Hart of the History Dept.
