Join us for our discussion of the film South of the Border, a documentary by Oscar winner Oliver Stone. 

Films for Action describes the documentary: “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 Nestor 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.”

This is the first part in our module on Latin American Socialism. Later we will be reading Open Veins of Latin America by Uruguayan journalist Eduardo Galeano and Pedagogy of the Oppressed by Brazilian philosopher Paulo Freire, with two essays in between. 

The discussion group is open to all, including DSA members outside of the San Fernando Valley and non-DSA members.
