The Rise and Fall of the Brown Buffalo: Film Screening and Discussion

¡Hasta la Revolución!

Hunter S. Thompson and Oscar Zeta Acosta

Oscar Acosta Zeta was a leader in the Chicano movement. A true iconoclast, and ultimately a legit revolutionary voice in the struggle for equality, this lifetime friend of Hunter Thompson is now mostly known for his novels, although he also worked as an attorney and politician. Now his life is being chronicled by the PBS series “Voces,” in an episode that's sorta named after his memorable auto-biographical novel, Autobiography of a Brown Buffalo. The teevee show, “The Rise and Fall of the Brown Buffalo” is a documentary made by Phillip Rodriguez, that was first broadcast back in March. This weekend, local PBS affiliate KNME TV-5 is screening the film again on Saturday morning, May 5, at 10am. A discussion featuring former Weekly Alibi contributor and creator of “Ask A Mexican,” Gustavo “I love tacos, sabes” Arellano follows the screening at the television station's studio. Be there or be como un pinche gabacho. This is a free event.
