Granma reports that the film director ran afoul of the Cuban embargo
THE U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control has just fined well-known filmmaker Oliver Stone for violating the laws of what they euphemistically refer to as an embargo, actually nothing more than a barbaric, brutal, systematic blockade, universally recognized as such and condemned by an overwhelming majority in the United Nations.
Stone and the production company Ixtlan were accused of having traveled to Cuba in 2202 [sic] and 2003 to shoot footage for two films on the leader of the Cuban Revolution.
