With unfettered access to the Zappa family trust and all archival footage, Zappa explores the private life behind the mammoth musical career that never shied away from the political turbulence of its time. Alex Winter’s assembly features appearances by Frank’s widow Gail Zappa and several of Frank’s musical collaborators including Mike Keneally, Ian Underwood, Steve Vai, Pamela Des Barres, Bunk Gardner, David Harrington, Scott Thunes, Ruth Underwood, Ray White and others.
Featuring an emotional throughline as well as testimonials from Frank’s widow, Gail Zappa, and multiple musical collaborators including Mike Keneally and Ian Underwood, Winter takes Zappa at his word and portrays him as a beautifully, enigmatic maestro of his own sound. From his humble beginnings sleeping inside the recording studio to selling out stadiums, Zappa never shies away from showing every facet of Frank and his avant-garde road to becoming a rock legend. Highlighting every inch of his musical journey, from the start of Mothers of Invention to his final performance in 1991, Winter’s master eye forces the audience to see Frank for exactly who he was: a band leader, father, recording artist, political disruptor and, above all else, a musical iconoclast whose influence continues to vibrate amongst the biggest musical hits today.
Special features for the Zappa home release include deleted scenes.
