The definitive documentary on music legend Frank Zappa.

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.

“As rich and complex as its subject’s best work, Zappa honors the life and career of a musical legend without falling into hagiography.” – Rotten Tomatoes

“Captures its subject’s spirit without tipping into mere hero worship.” – Hollywood Reporter

“A complex and surprisingly satisfying portrait of an artist who defiantly marched to the beat of a different drummer (or two).” – RogerEbert.Com

“This compelling, entertaining and no-B.S. documentary, directed by Alex Winter and produced by Frank’s son Ahmet, gives a full picture of the Italian American musical iconoclast.” – AARP Movies For Grownups
