Oliver Stone’s Untold History of the United States

Oliver Stone 2012
USA | 180 minutes

For much of his remarkable career, three-time Oscar-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone has set about exposing errors and omissions in the official record of such key moments in American history as the JFK assassination, the Vietnam War, and the Nixon administration. In his hugely ambitious new project, Oliver Stone's Untold History of the United States. Stone puts nothing less than the entire 20th century under a microscope, with results that are sobering, surprising and sure to be controversial. Produced as a 10-part miniseries for Showtime (where it will premiere in November), we are thrilled to present this special sneak preview of Untold History's first three chapters, which focus on the events leading up to America's entrance into World War II, the war itself, and the unjustly forgotten figure of former U.S. Vice President Henry Wallace. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Stone, co-writer Peter Kuznick, historian Douglas Brinkley (Rice University) and The Nation editor/publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel and journalist Jonathan Schell (The Nation).
