The controversial director of "JFK," "Platoon," "Born on the Fourth of July" and several other films will make local appearances Friday, Feb. 1 (as in TODAY) at Clemente High School at Western and Division and Saturday, Feb. 2 at the Institute for Puerto Rican Art and Culture. At both stops he'll be joined by American University history prof and Nuclear Studies Institute director Peter Kuznick. He's Stone's co-author on the bestselling book "The Untold History of the United States" and co-producer (also with Stone) of the 10-part Showtime documentary series "Empire, Colonialism and Torture." The Friday event at Clemente is moderated by professor Jose E. Lopez and follows a screening of episode 7 -- "Vietnam, LBJ, and the Third World." Saturday's press conference also will focus on the book and Showtime series.
