Do we have to bomb ISIS?
Discussion and screening featuring Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick
Join us for a discussion and screening with Oliver Stone and Peter
Kuznick of their Showtime TV series and book: The Untold History of
the United States. How much of our real history has been left out of
our education and why? What Stone and Kuznick uncover challenges the
United States' self-conception as an "exceptional" nation. Oliver
Stone is a three-time Academy Award winning filmmaker and director
of such notable films as Platoon, JFK, Wall Street and Midnight
Express. American University Professor Peter Kuznick is the director
of the Nuclear Studies Institute.
