Zappa

Zappa

There has yet to be a film about the life and times of the brilliant and genuinely maverick musician Frank Zappa. Director Alex Winter and his team have crafted a documentary from over a thousand hours of mostly unseen material from Zappa’s personal vault. ZAPPA is an expansive and intimate portrait of an extraordinary artist who was also fully engaged with the turbulent politics of his day.
