Event Details

IN PERSON: Ricardo López (Producer)


THE RISE AND FALL OF THE BROWN BUFFALO is a fresh and genre-defying film about the life of radical Chicano lawyer, author and countercultural 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. Relevant now more than ever, this urgent, untold story probes issues of racial identity, criminal justice, and politics, while giving Acosta his due place as a brilliant but troubled man who changed American history.

Executive produced by ACADEMY AWARD®-winning actor Benicio Del Toro, who portrayed Acosta in director Terry Gilliam’s cult classic Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, THE RISE AND FALL OF THE BROWN BUFFALO takes a bold approach to its subject matter that flips the conventional PBS documentary format on its head by using the technique of actors telling and living out the life of the subject.
