SANTA ANA–THE RISE AND FALL OF THE BROWN BUFFALO Film Screening and Discussion
October 7, 2017 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
SANTA ANA– Fans of Gonzo journalism won’t want to miss the Orange County Premiere screening of The Rise And Fall Of The Brown Buffalo with acclaimed filmmaker Phillip Rodriguez on Saturday, Oct. 7 @ 8pm as part of the 8th OC Film Fiesta in the heart of Santa Ana. The Rise And Fall Of The Brown Buffalo is a fascinating portrait of iconoclastic Chicano writer and lawyer Oscar Zeta Acosta, author of Revolt of the Cockroach People and the larger than life inspiration for Hunter S. Thompson’s “Dr. Gonzo” in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. The author of two groundbreaking autobiographical novels, Acosta’s powerful literary voice, brash courtroom style and notorious revolutionary antics made him a revered figure within the Chicano movement, and offered one of the most brazen, frontal assaults on white supremacy seen at the time. Award-winning Director Phillip Rodriguez (Ruben Salazar: Man in the Middle, Brown is the New Green: George Lopez and the American Dream) will be in attendance for a Q&A. Free parking. Admission: $10 General / $5 Students, Teachers, Military/Veterans and Santa Ana residents. Festival Passes: $75. The OC Film Fiesta is a program of Media Arts Santa Ana (MASA), a project of Community Partners, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and proceeds support MASA’s free youth media classes.
