A history lesson for dirty minds and zinesters. The documentary about Underground Comix artist Skip Williamson.
Pigheaded tells the provocative life story of underground cartoonist and subversive satirist Skip Williamson. His unapologetic art exemplified the spirit of the 1960s counter-culture and revolutionary movements. Williamson helped lead the burgeoning Underground Comix scene five decades ago as a founder (along with Jay Lynch) 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 and lurid work in Playboy, High Times, National Lampoon and many more. Williamson has collaborated with such notable characters as Abbie Hoffman, Robert Crumb, Jerry Rubin, Jay Lynch, S. Clay Wilson and Shel Silverstein. Told through candid interviews, animation and archival photographs, Pigheaded faithfully portrays Williamson’s life as rebellious artist, irreverent pighead and loving family man.
