Oliver Stone asks one thing above all others of his audience: dare to hold those in power accountable for what they do.
To honor Oliver Stone's most politically inflammatory work, The Tyranny of Honest Men is a travelling, multi-city festival is based on the recurring concept that the greatest evils aren't perpetrated by frightening monsters, but by the petty bureaucrats that hide behind a wall of routine and secrecy. Ultimately, it falls upon us as citizens to expose their misdeeds.
Hosted across the country in Civil Defense shelters and decommissioned Strategic Air Defense sites, Tyranny closes at the notorious Greenbrier Hotel in West Virginia, site of a luxury subterranean bunker intended for top governmental officials.
Tyranny also boasts commentary from some of the most entertaining luminaries from both sides of the political divide. From philosopher and author Noam Chomsky, to libertarian entertainer and Cato institute fellow Penn Jillette, and controversial hacktivist Julian Assange, the festival will provide insight into the background events covered in Stone's films.Films:JFK / Salvador / Born on the Fourth of July / Nixon / Wall Street
