PIGHEADED Documentary Screening
Directed by John Kinhart
USA / 2015 / 90mins / DC Premiere

Pigheaded tells the provocative life story of underground cartoonist and subversive satirist Skip Williamson. His unapologetic art exemplified the spirit of the 60s counter-culture movement. Williamson helped lead the burgeoning Underground Comix scene five decades ago as a founder of Bijou Funnies, one of the earliest and longest running titles of that Movement. From his involvement in the infamous 1968 Democratic National Convention riots to his oft offensive work in Playboy, High Times,National Lampoon and many more. Williamson has collaborated with such notable characters as Abbie Hoffman, Robert Crumb, Jerry Rubin, Shel Silverstein, S. Clay Wilson and Jay Lynch. Pigheaded faithfully portrays Williamsons life as rebellious artist, irreverent pighead and loving family man. Told through candid interviews, animation and archival photographs, this film reveals a man who is a voice not only for his generation but generations to come.
