A tribute to Robert Downey Sr. (1936-2021) with a digital restoration of his 1969 counterculture classic.

Putney Swope, the only black executive at his firm, is unexpectedly elected its president and turns the advertising industry on its ear through a series of outrageous, taboo-busting TV commercials (strewn throughout the film like comedic landmines.) He renames the company "Truth and Soul", keeps one token white employee, and becomes a "threat" to national security. This film takes no prisoners with its ferocious satire, and skewers the entire political spectrum.
