2016 SVFF Coffee Talks Guests



Oliver Stone

Academy Award® winning writer and director Oliver Stone will join us in March for Coffee Talks. With over 20 full-length feature films to his credit, Mr. Stone has made some of the most influential and iconic films of the several decades. Some have been at deep odds with conventional myth—films such as “Platoon” (1986); “Born on the Fourth of July” (1989); “JFK” (1991); “Natural Born Killers” (1994); and “Nixon” (1995).

Stone’s films have often reached wide, international audiences and have had significant cultural impact. These include “Salvador” (1985), deeply critical of the U.S. Government’s involvement in Central America; “Wall Street” (1987), an exposé of America’s new capitalism; “World Trade Center” (2006), a true story of 2 (of only 20) 9/11 survivors; and “The Doors” (1991), a poetic look at the 1960s and Jim Morrison’s ecstatic music.
