Academy Award-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone and historian Peter Kuznick will speak at Boston College about their TV documentary series and book “The Untold History of the United States” on April 5 in Robsham Theater.

Their talk, titled “Bush and Obama: The Age of Terror,” will take place from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Tickets are free, but are limited to one per person and must be picked up at the Robsham box office [www.bc.edu/robsham].

Stone is the director of such films as “Platoon,” “JFK” and “Wall Street.” Kuznick is a professor of history at American University and director of the Nuclear Studies Institute. The two, along with Matt Graham, are the writers of “The Untold History of the United States,” which premiered on the Showtime network in the fall of 2012; a companion book of the same name was released at the same time. The series is a re-examination of various chapters of American modern history, such as the Cold War, the United States’ use of nuclear bombs on Japan and the US global role in the post-Communism era, using little-known documents and newly uncovered archival material.

The event is sponsored by the Institute for the Liberal Arts and Sociology Department with support from the College of Arts and Sciences.
