Eat That Question

In brief: An energetic, sharply edited celebration of the famed American musician and composer, whose wackily charismatic public persona belied his complex artistry, fierce intelligence and political conviction. He swiftly became the most quotable voice of dissent in popular music. Self-taught composer, musician, bandleader, producer and independent thinker, Frank Zappa created an oeuvre of blunt, eccentric, and satirical compositions that masterfully bridged genres ranging from rock to jazz, electronic, orchestral and novelty music. Told entirely through archival footage culled from the performer's 30-year career, this celebration of Zappa's life and legacy illustrates his irrepressible quest for enlightenment. Zappa died far too early, in 1993, of cancer. How important then, that such unforgettable Zappa interviews and performances across three decades have been painstakingly gathered from the obscure vaults of TV stations around the world to create this unique 90 minute feature documentary.
