From the red carpet to the disputed borderlands of the Caucasus, RFE/RL offers these recent exclusive video interviews:
As U.S. film director Oliver Stone attended the Karlovy Vary film festival in the Czech Republic to received the Crystal Globe award for his contributions to world cinema, Radio Farda spoke to him about one of his unrealized projects: a planned documentary about Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad. Stone, who is known for tackling controversial political subjects, also discussed his oldest son’s decision to convert to Islam and the case of U.S. whistleblower Edward Snowden.
Thomas de Waal, a Caucasus scholar with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, recently launched a 10th anniversary edition of his book “The Black Garden: Armenia and Azerbaijan Through Peace and War,” widely considered the best account in English of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. To mark the new addition, Radio Azadliq spoke with de Waal about how the situation has changed – and not changed – over the last decade.
