Showtime Slates Oliver Stone’s The Putin Interviews


The Putin Interviews, a series of interviews between filmmaker Oliver Stone (Platoon, Snowden) and Russian President Vladimir Putin, is premiering on Showtime beginning June 12.

The Putin Interviews will run over four consecutive nights. With the help of longtime documentary producer Fernando Sulichin, Stone interviewed Putin more than a dozen times over the course of two years, most recently in February following the U.S. presidential election. In the interviews, Putin and Stone discuss the election, President Trump, Syria, Edward Snowden and more.

“If Vladimir Putin is indeed the great enemy of the United States, then at least we should try to understand him,” Stone said of the film.

The Putin Interviews is produced by Sulichin, New Element Media and Rob Wilson. Sulichin’s previous credits include The Untold History of the United StatesSouth of the Border, Comandante, Snowden, Savages and Malcolm X.
