Andrew Herwitz’ The Film Sales Company has signed on to represent North American rights to Oliver Stone’s documentary South Of The Border on the eve of the film’s US premiere.

South Of The Border premiered at the Venice Film Festival and will get its first US outing at a New York event hosted by the Film Society Of Lincoln Center timed to coincide with the annual meeting of the UN General Assembly.

The film explores the complicated relationship between the United States and the firebrand Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez.

Stone is expected to attend the screening with much of the cast of Wall Street 2, which he is currently shooting in New York, along with President Chavez of Venezuala, President Eva Morales of Bolivia and other South American leaders.
