Oliver Stone, the award-winning film director of movies including "JFK" and "Platoon," spoke at a press conference on June 23, 2010. Stone, whose latest film is "South of the Border," talked about the movie, making it and the political issues it addresses. The movie, which was released in June, examines Latin American political leaders. Stone and his crew filmed South American leaders including Venezuela's Hugo Chavez and Argentina's Cristina Kirchner for the film highlighting leftward-shifting politics among Latin American leaders. Stone answered questions along with Tariq Ali and Mark Weisbrot, who worked the film's screenplay.
