Cinema Libre on Oliver Stone’s ‘Border’

Studio picks up N. American rights to docu

Cinema Libre Studio has picked up North American rights to Oliver Stone’s docu “South of the Border,” centering on Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez’s rise to power.

Pic, which premiered at the Venice Film Fest in September, will be released in 10 cities starting with New York on June 25, followed by Los Angeles on July 2.

“In January 2009, I travelled to Venezuela to interview President Hugo Chavez and better understand his portrayal in the U.S. media. Once we began our journey, however, we found ourselves telling a larger and even more compelling story about the region,” said Stone. Docu includes interviews with several other South American presidents including Evo Morales of Bolivia and Cuba’s Raul Castro.

“His insightful documentary shows how these leaders of Latin America are being intentionally villainized by the U.S. mass media,” said Philippe Diaz, founder of Cinema Libre.

L.A.-based Cinema Libre has released films including “Outfoxed,” and “Uncovered: The War on Iraq.”
