Witness actor / comedian / activist Russell Brand on his journey from addict, self-proclaimed narcissist and Hollywood star living in the fast-lane to his "second coming" as political disruptor & newfound hero to the underserved. Acclaimed director Ondi Timoner takes us behind the scenes of this wildly complex man for an intimate look at what drives Russell Brand as he injects his madness into the world and calls for revolution.


   "A strong and stirring portrait" - The Wrap 


“Engrossing portrait… Simultaneously amusing and powerful encapsulation of Brand’s journey from outrageous provocateur to enlightened zealot, preaching social changes” - INDIEWIRE 


"It’s very hard not to like Timoner’s brilliant documentary... It had us in stitches… Cleverly edited, well-constructed and as hilarious as a Russell Brand documentary should be." - Hollywood News


 "An unexpected but near-perfect pairing of filmmaker and subject, Ondi Timoner and Russell Brand recognize one another’s talents and position on the media landscape." - The Playlist 


"Ondi Timoner’s film is impassioned and forthright (and brilliantly funny)... A searing portrayal of a man wrestling down his demons by slaying them with positivity and passion." - Flickering Myth

Ondi Timoner

Ondi Timoner is a director, writer and producer who takes on the impossible and makes it possible!  She creates award-winning documentaries which illustrate complex and polarizing people who are redefining culture.  A force of nature unto herself, Ondi harnesses her passion to create unique narratives by deconstructing these visionary disruptors into relatable and identifiable characters.

Timoner has the rare distinction of winning the Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize – twice!  The first was for her 2004 documentary, DIG!, about the collision of art & commerce and the second for 2009’s WE LIVE IN PUBLIC, about Internet visionary Josh Harris. Both films were acquired by the Museum of Modern Art in New York for their permanent collection.

Timoner’s latest feature documentary, BRAND: A SECOND COMING, chronicles comedian / author / activist Russell Brand’s transformation from drug/sex/fame addict to unexpected political disruptor.  It premiered as the Opening Night film at SXSW 2015. BRAND has gone on to win the Ashland Film Festival’s No Limits Award as well as the Dramatic Storytelling in Documentary Award from the Sarasota Film Festival. The film will release theatrically in the United States through the Ignite Channel on September 25, 2015 followed by the theatrical releases in the UK and Australia.
