      "With unfettered access to the Zappa family trust and all archival footage," reads the info on the PRFF website, "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."

Todd's Monkey Beach, and Joel Bakan and Jennifer Abbott's The New Corporation: The Unfortunately Necessary Sequel.

      Rounding out the lineup of movies are Jean-François Lesage’s Prayer for a Lost Mitten, Zach Carver's Race to Alaska, Jerry Rothwell's The Reason I Jump, Deia Schlosberg's The Story of Plastic, and Mohammad Rasoulof's There Is No Evil.
