Oliver Stone has written and directed some of the most iconic Hollywood films of all time, from Midnight Express and Platoon to Scarface and Natural Born Killers.
Join the Academy Award winner for this virtual event, as he takes us right to the heart of what it's like to make movies on the edge, to celebrate the publication of his brand-new powerful and evocative memoir, Chasing The Light.
In conversation, Oliver will share a true insider's story of Hollywood's years of upheaval in the 1970s and '80s. He’ll recount his formative years – and share the struggles and triumphs he encountered in the making of his iconic films. Whether delving into fascinating anecdotes from script meetings with Al Pacino, considering the breathless hustles to finance the acclaimed and divisive Salvador or giving a vivid recreation of filming Platoon in the depths of the Philippine jungle with Kevin Dillon, Charlie Sheen, Willem Dafoe, Johnny Depp et al, Oliver brings this period alive as only someone at the centre of the action truly can.
Raw, savagely honest, and as dramatic as any of his movies, this event promises to be a fascinating exposure of Stone's inner life and his powerful, all devouring energy and genius that drove him to become one of the world's greatest filmmakers.
"I loved it. An amazing book." Louis Theroux
