Bricca was a leader of the Bay Area protest movements of the 1960s and 70s
with a fierce passion for social justice, but found the transition from
activist to breadwinner a challenging one. In this moving, psychologically
complex documentary, filmmaker Jacob Bricca follows the extraordinary journey
of his father Kit, a man whose uncompromising idealism changed the world but
tore his family apart.
Kit organizes with Joan Baez and Cesar Chavez in the
Sixties, helps start Amnesty International USA in the Seventies, then
transforms himself into a high flying commodities broker in the Eighties and
a shamanic healer named Tatanka in the Nineties. As the financial crisis of 2008 hits and
Kit's finances fall into disarray, Jacob begins his search for answers by
following his father on a series of quixotic adventures.
and intimate, Finding Tatanka features never before seen footage from a lost
era and tells a sweeping story about the fate of American idealism, the cost
of dreams, and the meaning of family.
