Presidents attend Stone’s New York screening

Venezuela leader Hugo Chavez and President Evo Morales joined the moviemaker, Susan Sarandon, Courtney Love and Shia LaBeouf at the Lincoln Center for the U.S. premiere of Stone’s documentary.

Both Chavez and Morales appear in the film.

Stone says, “It’s a highlight to be in my hometown to greet Hugo Chavez and Evo Morales, both of whom have been, in my opinion, unfairly demonised by the U.S. media. Their graciousness is a signal to us to reach across borders.”
