Oliver Stone Seeks To Make Film On Ahmadinejad

Breaking News

U.S. filmmaker Oliver Stone has again proposed making a documentary about Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iranian producer and filmmaker Alireza Sajjadpur said August 16.

Sajjadpur, who is also secretary of Iran's Islamic Society of Artists, said that Stone's publicist had emailed the request to Ahmadinejad's office, and added that in the email, the publicist "referred to the bad image that the U.S. media has given to Islam and Islamic countries and said that the documentary could assist in countering such negative propaganda."

Ahmadinejad's art advisor, Javad Shamaqdari, has stated that the president has not yet responded to this request.

Stone's first request to make the documentary was announced by Sajjadpur on June 28, but Ahmadinejad's media advisor Mehdi Kalhor rejected it and called Stone a part of "the Great Satan" (i.e. the U.S.).
