FORT MASON FLIX: Zappa (a SFFILM at the Drive-In event)


Presented By

SFFILM at the Drive-In

Oct 3rd @ 9:00pm


SPECIAL NOTE: SFFILM has partnered with Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture to present SFFILM at the Drive-In, two evenings of programs at FORT MASON FLIX on October 3 and 4, 2020. With a little something for everyone, the four films in this weekend series feature an early preview of a highly anticipated music doc, a contemporary San Francisco classic from an emerging auteur, a classic family film from our Bay Area friends at Pixar, and a rarely screened gritty noir perfect for a Sunday night in the fog.

About: Film preceded by a pre-recorded conversation with director Alex Winter!

It’s been almost 30 years since Frank Zappa’s death, yet his legacy is prodigious. Granted unfettered access to the musician’s archives, Alex Winter (Deep Web, Festival 2015) unearths stellar footage ranging from Zappa’s first high-school group to the Mothers of Invention to his wide-ranging solo career. Winter also shows how the multi-instrumentalist virtuoso, filmmaker, and devoted family man boldly argued for artistic freedom in manifold ways. A film for devoted fans and novices alike, Zappa stands as the definitive portrait of this seminal artist.
