Oliver Stone: Untold – An Interview with Bob Woodruff


playgallery

Published on Nov 26, 2012

One of the most controversial directors in Hollywood, Oliver Stone has made films that are remarkable both for their handling of subject matter and the degree of controversy such handling inspires. A producer, screenwriter, and actor, Stone is consistently identified with his more political works, including Platoon and Nixon. Despite this association, Stone has stated that his films are “first and foremost dramas about individuals in personal struggles,” and he believes himself to be a dramatist rather than a political filmmaker. His current project, the 10-part TV documentary, The Untold History of the United States, focuses on the last 60 years of America’s history, debunking some heroes while crediting those previously lost to history. Stone has received three Academy Awards and 31 nominations.

Award-winning journalist Bob Woodruff, a current ABC news reporter, will interview Stone for this Penny W. Stamps Series presentation. In the sit-down interview, Woodruff, who was severely injured while reporting in Iraq as a World news co-anchor, will discuss the motives behind Stone’s latest project and more political works.

With support from UM Screen Arts & Cultures and the Ann Arbor Film Festival.

This October 25, 2012 lecture is part of the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design Distinguished Speaker Series. Established with the generous support of alumna Penny W. Stamps, the Speaker Series brings respected emerging and established artists/designers from a broad spectrum of media to the School to conduct a public lecture and engage with students, faculty, and the larger at the University of Michigan and Ann Arbor communities.

Climate Change: Will Congress Listen to the National Academy of Sciences?


SenatorWhitehouse

Uploaded on Jun 14, 2011

When Congress received the report it commissioned, “America’s Climate Choices,” from the National Academy of Sciences in 2011, Congress failed to take action.

The report found that “climate change is occurring…and poses significant risks for a broad range of human and natural systems.”

Senator Whitehouse took to the floor of the Senate to ask his colleagues to review the report’s findings and to take action. He reminded them that we have not solved the problem of climate change and that we can not afford to ignore it.

Ignoring climate change isn’t going to make it go away. 97% of climate scientists agree that it is real. Major corporations like Coca-Cola acknowledge it. Isn’t it time the Congress did too?
