About the Film
The Rise and Fall of the Brown Buffalo is a fresh and innovative look into the life of radical Chicano lawyer, author and counter cultural icon, Oscar Zeta Acosta. His story sets out to right a historical wrong, giving Acosta his due place as an imperfect, but larger than life figure in American history. Relevant now more than ever, this urgent, untold story probes issues of racial identity, criminal justice and politics, while revealing the personal story of a troubled and brilliant man coming to terms with his identity and finding meaning in the struggles of his people.

This event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP below!
