THE BITTER buddha: Special screening

The film follows Eddie Pepitone, a cult icon of the American alternative comedy movement. Offering a glimpse at the life of this true comic, “The Bitter Buddha” brings out both the funniest and darkest sides of the business. We watch as Pepitone attempts to break through his cult-status while dealing with self doubt, sobriety and a challenging family past.

Original animation, stand-up material and interviews with Patton Oswalt, Sarah Silverman, Marc Maron and others help us gain insight into this fascinating character. Above all, The Bitter Buddha is an unhinged portrait of creativity, enlightenment and rage.
