THE BROTHERHOOD PRESENTS: THE RISE AND FALL OF THE BROWN BUFFALO + TWILIGHT
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15 – 35th Annual Olympia Film Festival
The Brotherhood present:
8:30pm doors / 9:00pm film
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. The author of two groundbreaking autobiographical novels, Autobiography of a Brown Buffalo and The Revolt of the Cockroach People, Acosta’s powerful literary voice, brash courtroom style and notorious revolutionary antics made him a revered figure within the Chicano movement of the 1960s and 70s and offered one of the most brazen assaults on the status quo and white supremacy seen at the time.

SHORT NARRATIVE FILM: TWILIGHT
Exploring the relationship between sound and picture, this film is inspired by the two lights (twi-light) found inside of film projectors. Experimental animation created by applying both sound and picture directly onto 35mm film. Once the soundtrack was created each individual sound was assigned a specific shape and color that repeats through out the entire composition.
