HRSS - The Rise and Fall of the Brown Buffalo - Free Screening

The City of West Hollywood's Human Rights Speakers Series, PBS SoCal, and the Community Perspectives Film Series present a special screening and panel on the discussion for: THE RISE AND FALL OF THE BROWN BUFFALO The Rise and Fall of the Brown Buffalo is an innovative look into the life of Chicano Los Angeles lawyer, author, activist, and countercultural icon, Oscar Zeta Acosta. 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. Yet, Acosta is more known as Hunter S. Thompson’s bumbling samoan sidekick in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas than for his own work exposing racial bias, hypocrisy, and repression within the California justice system.

This film sets out to right this historical wrong, giving Acosta his due place as an imperfect, but larger-than-life figure in American history.
