Using an innovative mix of dramatization and archival footage, award-winning director Phillip Rodriguez and associate co-writer David Ventura explore the tragic and inspiring life of Oscar Zeta Acosta, a civil rights activist and founding figure in Gonzo journalism alongside Hunter S. Thompson. Rodriguez’s script comes straight from interviews with Acosta and Thompson to create an intimate and accurate portrayal of the enigmatic figure. A screening of the documentary will be followed by a talk with the director and co-writer.
