Director Oliver Stone to discuss 'Snowden' at Harvard school

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) " Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone will talk about his new film, "Snowden," at the Harvard Kennedy School.

The movie is set to be released in theaters Friday. It stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as former CIA employee Edward Snowden, who in 2013 leaked classified information from the National Security Agency to the media, revealing global surveillance programs. He then fled to Russia, where he got asylum.

Stone is set to talk about the film Monday evening with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Ron Suskind.

The event is organized by the John F. Kennedy Forum at the Institute of Politics, which regularly hosts leaders in politics, media and business.
