The Zap Comix anti-hero R. Crumb says of Robert Williams: “He’s an art hero, that’s the truth!” This irreverent documentary delivers insight into multiple American counter-cultures by following the great American artist and underground legend Robert Williams. From Hot Rods to Punk and Metal, from LSD to the top of the art world, the influential paintings of Robert Williams defied categorization until they became their own art movement. ROBERT WILLIAMS MR BITCHIN’ recently won “Best Documentary” at the Comic Con International Film Festival and will have a Special Screening on July 30th at the American Cinematheque’s Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles. Soon after, the film will be released nationwide on DVD and video on demand (VOD) platforms by Cinema Libre Studio.
