Eat That Question: Frank Zappa In His Own Words looks at the life and philosophies of the late avant-garde rocker entirely through his interviews and TV appearances. Eight years in the making, the doc has the support of Zappa’s Family Trust and will have its world premiere out-of-competition at the Sundance Film Festival in January.
“Frank Zappa was one of the most outstanding musicians and composers of the 20th century,” contends the film’s director, Thorsten Schütte, in an interview with realscreen. “In many regards, he is underestimated and labeled as an enfant terrible of rock n’ roll, but the complexity and scope of his work, together with his position as a social commentator, made him very dear to me.”
