The film director Oliver Stone will take part next week in a discussion about his film Platoon at a screening of the film organised by the CineCiutat. To be shown in its original version, the screening comes under the mark of the Majorca International Film and Media Festival.

The director of films such as Born On The Fourth Of July, JFK and Natural Born Killers will be at the cinema to participate in a symposium about Platoon, for which he received an Oscar for best director. The 1986 film was the first of a trilogy about the Vietnam War, and it also received Oscars for best film as well as for best sound mixing and best film editing. In addition, it received three Golden Globes, a Silver Bear and two BAFTAs.

The film is to be shown simultaneously in three theatres at CineCiutat, and the post-screening discussion will be in theatre two, but this will also be broadcast in theatre three and the Nartha hall, from where viewers will be able to send their questions for Stone. Tickets are now on sale, and they cost ten euros or 7.50 for members.

Prior to coming to Palma, Stone will be taking part in a conference at the World Business Forum in Madrid’s Teatro Real and on 11 October he will be receiving the Grand Honorary Award from the Catalonia International Festival of Fantastic Cinema in Sitges.

Platoon was a poor representation of the conflict in Vietnam compared to 'We Were Soldiers and Young'. Platoon was full of sensational cliches - but hey! That is what Hollywood is all about.
