SYNOPSIS

Directed by Alex Winter (Bill of Bill & Ted, acclaimed maker of ‘The Panama Papers’, ‘Deep Web’ & more), ‘Zappa’ presents an intimate portrait of one of music’s most important and iconoclastic figures, a man whose prolific and brilliant work changed music and the music industry for ever, & whose cultural impact – he even helped inspire a revolution in Czechoslovakia – was far-reaching & enduring. With unprecedented access to Zappa’s archives, exclusive interview and eye-popping unseen live & behind-the-scenes footage, ‘Zappa’ will open your mind to the creativity & fearlessness of a man whose “worldview, art & politics” were, in Winter’s words, “far ahead of their time, & profoundly relevant in our challenging times.”

“WINTER MAINLY BUILDS THE BULK OF HIS DOC OFF A SINGLE STATEMENT: ‘I DIDN’T CONSIDER HIM AS A ROCK STAR. HE WAS A COMPOSER’… AND THE FACT THAT IT GOES THE EXTRA MILE MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE.” – ROLLING STONE
