CIVIL RIGHTS AND THE WORLD: OZA AND THE CHICANO MOVEMENT | THE RISE AND FALL OF THE BROWN BUFFALO, Burke Theatre | The United States Navy Memorial, Saturday, 14. July 2018

This film takes an innovative look into the life of radical Chicano lawyer, author and counter cultural icon, Oscar Zeta Acosta.  He was the basis for the character Dr. Gonzo in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas written by his friend, legendary journalist-provocateur Hunter Thompson. OZA’s untold story probes issues of racial identity, criminal justice, politics, and media representation, while revealing the personal side of a troubled, radical and brilliant man coming to terms with his identity and finding meaning in the struggles of his people.
