ABOUT OLIVER STONE 

William Oliver Stone (born September 15, 1946) is an American film director, screenwriter, producer and veteran. Stone came to public prominence between the mid-1980s and the early 1990s for writing and directing a series of films about the Vietnam War, in which he had participated as an infantry soldier. Many of Stone’s films focus on contemporary and controversial American political and cultural issues, such as JFKNatural Born Killers, and Nixon.

Stone’s films often combine different camera and film formats within a single scene as evidenced in JFKNatural Born Killers, and Nixon.  British newspaper The Guardian has described Stone as “one of the few committed men of the left working in mainstream American cinema.”  Stone has received three Academy Awards for his work on the films Midnight ExpressPlatoon, and Born on the Fourth of July. He was presented with the Extraordinary Contribution to Filmmaking Award at the 2007 Austin Film Festival.

Stone is co-author of the New York Times best-selling book The Untold History of the United States.
