When Hugo Chavez went to address the United Nations General Assembly in September 2009, he attended an exhibition of Oliver Stone's film "South of the Border," where he was photographed laughing with his daughter Rosa and actress Susan Sarandon. Sarandon is a longtime political activist with groups such as anti-war organization Code Pink, and she vowed to move to Canada if Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) had won the 2008 presidential election. At the film event, Stone and Chavez spoke about the documentary onstage, along with Bolivian President Evo Morales, and Chavez lauded audience members Sarandon and actor Danny Glover from the stage.
