SXSW 2015 INTERVIEW: BRAND A SECOND COMING DIRECTOR ONDI TIMONER
by Jason Whyte
""BRAND: A SECOND COMING is the story of Russell Brand, a genius artist who really took everything he did to the hilt. He bought into all the major myths that we're sold of how drugs, sex, fame, money, and power is the way to happiness, attained them all - yet came up empty. So he started to look inward and wrote a transformative show called the Messiah Complex where he studied the difference between fleeting pop fame and the lasting relevance of his true heroes, Che Guevara, Gandhi, Jesus Christ, and Malcolm X. Through that work, Russell realized he needed to leave Hollywood and dedicate his life to debunking the lies we are all sold. Because he is a brilliant comedian, on and off stage, he is able to articulate what he feels is distracting all of us from engaging in a more active and present way in our lives, in our politics, in our culture. He goes on tour, moves back to England, starts a YouTube channel to expose the truth behind the news: the Trews, and writes a book REVOLUTION. It was a lot to encapsulate in a feature but it sure was an exciting ride!" Director Ondi Timoner on BRAND: A SECOND COMING which is screening as the Opening Night Headliner presentation of the 2015 South By Southwest Film Festival." (more)
