About "VOCES" and "The Rise and Fall of the Brown Buffalo"

Produced by Latino Public Broadcasting, "VOCES" is PBS’ signature Latino arts and culture documentary showcase and the only ongoing national television series devoted to exploring and celebrating the rich diversity of the Latino cultural experience. 

This March, VOCES presents "The Rise and Fall of the Brown Buffalo," a 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.
