Brand: A Second Coming

BRAND: A Second Coming follows comedian/author/activist Russell Brand as he dives headlong into drugs, sex & fame in an attempt to find happiness, only to realize that our culture feeds us bad ideas & empty idols. Through his stand up, Brand explores his own true icons -Gandhi, Che Guevara, Malcolm X & Jesus Christ- & evolves from addict & Hollywood star to an unexpected political disruptor & newfound hero to the underserved. Award-winning director, Ondi Timoner (DIG!, WE LIVE IN PUBLIC), explores the contradiction between Brand’s clarion call for revolution & his hunger to transcend pop fame. Will Brand hold fast against the roar of criticism to break out of the very system that built him? [Synopsis courtesy of SXSW Film Festival]
