American: The Bill Hicks Story


American:  The Bill Hicks Story | SXSW 2010 Accepted Film


Much more than a comedian, Bill Hicks was and still is an inspiration to millions. His timeless comedy tackled the contradictions of America and modern life head on, as he skewered organized religion, railed against the hypocrisies of his government and exposed the collusion of the mainstream media, earning him censorship in the USA, but whose messages continue to resonate with subsequent generations. He also had some excellent dick jokes.

Pushing documentary storytelling in a new direction, AMERICAN uses a stunning new animation technique to bring the tale of one of modern cultures most iconic heroes to the big screen.
