American film producer Oliver Stone, a longtime fan of the late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, plans to bring the life of the leader to the big screen, according to AFP news agency on June 22.
Film about Hugo Chavez
“Oliver Stone is making a very beautiful film about our commander, Hugo Chavez, that the project could be completed in the coming months,” AFP quoted the incumbent President Nicolas Maduro speaking at a reception at Lara state.
Mr Chavez died on October 5.3 after a long struggle with cancer and just before he could take office in his third term.
Mr. Maduro, who Chavez chose to take over his position, said that he knew about Mr. Stone’s film during his recent trip to Paris (France), his last stop on his trip to Europe. first in the role of Venezuelan President.
President Maduro said American film producers planned to visit Venezuela as soon as possible to make a premiere in the South American country documentary titled The Untold History of the United States, temporarily translated. History has not been told about the United States, or as Mr. Maduro’s way of saying, “the history of American imperialism.”
“We are very excited to welcome him to introduce this film on Venezuelan television screens,” Maduro said.
According to Fox News, Stone, a three-time Oscar winner, has repeatedly visited Chavez in Caracas. He interviewed the Venezuelan leader in 2009 about a documentary titled Al Sur de la Frontera (translated Southern Frontier), in which he expressed resentment to the US President then George W Bush talks about the hostility towards the Venezuelan leader.
Through interviews with Chavez and the then leaders of Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia and Ecuador, the film shows an elegant portrait of Mr. Chavez, mixed with descriptions of negative reports of the media and criticism of American officials against Venezuela.
Critics say the film is biased and outrageous, as Mr. Stone did not include the rivals’ statements or mention Mr Chavez’s warm relationship with the media.
Despite a tense relationship with the US, Chavez used to entertain Hollywood stars, including actors Sean Penn, Danny Glover, Tim Robbins and Kevin Spacey, and often showed interest in describing scenes. American movies in speeches broadcast on television.

He [Jesus] accompanied me in difficult times, in crucial moments. So Jesus Christ is no doubt an historical figure – he was someone who rebelled, an anti-imperialist guy. He confronted the Roman Empire.
Because who might think that Jesus was a capitalist? No. Judas was the capitalist, for taking the coins! Christ was a revolutionary. He confronted the religious hierarchies. He confronted the economic power of the time. He preferred death in the defense of his humanistic ideals, who fostered change. He is our Jesus Christ.
