The Rise and Fall of the Brown Buffalo

Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
A fresh and genre-defying film about the life of radical Chicano lawyer, author and counter-cultural icon, Oscar Zeta Acosta — the basis for the character Dr. Gonzo in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, written by his friend, legendary journalist-provocateur Hunter S. Thompson.. Channeling the spirit of the psychedelic 60's and the joyful irreverence of “Gonzo” journalism, THE RISE AND FALL OF THE BROWN BUFFALO shows Acosta’s personal and creative evolution playing out against the backdrop of a society in turmoil.. From his origins in segregated rural California, to his stint as a Baptist missionary in the jungles of Panama, to his radicalization in the Chicano movement of the late 60's, and finally to his mysterious disappearance off the coast of Mexico in 1974, director Phillip Rodriguez offers a vision of a complex figure at once wholly unique, and emblematic of a generation.. Official Selection at the San Francisco Latin American Film Festival and the San Diego Latin American Film Festival. Executive Produced by Benicio Del Toro.
