New trailer for Alex Winter-directed documentary ‘Zappa’

Available to watch now.

Here’s the new UK trailer for Zappa, Alex Winter’s highly-anticipated and compelling documentary on the life and career of the extraordinary Frank Zappa, which is now available to watch in the UK and Ireland.

With unfettered access to the Zappa Vault, and archival footage contained within, Zappa explores the private life behind the mammoth musical career that never shied away from the political turbulence of its time. Director Alex Winter’s film features appearances by those who knew him best including Frank’s widow Gail Zappa and many of Frank’s musical collaborators; Mike Keneally, Ian Underwood, Steve Vai, Pamela Des Barres, Bunk Gardner, David Harrington, Scott Thunes, Ruth Underwood and Ray White.

Years-in-the-making, Zappa is the first all-access documentary about the legendary icon and conveys the scope of his prodigious and varied creative output and the breadth of his extraordinary personal and political life.  Director/producer Alex Winter and producer Glen Zipper were granted exclusive access by Gail Zappa to a vast collection of his unreleased music, movies, incomplete projects, unseen interviews and unheard concert recordings, much of which was deteriorating and in danger of being lost forever.  Following a two year mission to preserve and archive the vault materials, they assembled ZAPPA with this wealth of never-before-seen footage and the addition of present-day interviews, building a narrative both intimate and epic in scope.

Check out the new trailer below.
