A classic searing slice of Oliver Stone anti-US conservative forces invective, this characterful, action pic depicts James Woods’s Richard Boyle covering the Salvadorian civil war, and becoming entangled with both the right wing military and left-wing freedom fighters.

Martin is in residence for two days at the Festival, hosting other Conflict | reportage screenings and events.
