Filmmakers Oliver Stone and Tariq Ali presented their thoughts on the politics of history and what they consider to be hidden aspects of American history in this continuation of the ongoing dialogue which includes the book they co-authored, On History. Their discussion ranged across several topics, from American involvement against the Russian Revolution to a profile of the labor union, the Industrial Workers of the World. In this event Tariq Ali interviewed Oliver Stone. He illustrated many of his points by clips from their films. The program opened with a montage of Mr. Stone’s feature films.
“Opening Night! Oliver Stone and Tariq Ali: On History” was a LIVE from the NYPL program in the Celeste Bartos Forum of the New York Public Library.
