Who the F*@% is Frank Zappa? by Alex Winter

On March 8, 2016 Alex Winter has launched a 30 days kickstarter campaign for his hopefully soon to come documentary Who the F*@% is Frank Zappa? (all details available here, I for one pledged for 200$).

On March 9, 2016 Ahmet Zappa has posted the following on facebook:

People have been asking so I just wanted to clarify that the family is proud to give Alex Winter and his project our complete support, as well as unrestricted access to the Vault. This is the first time we’ve ever opened the Vault to someone outside of our family, but Alex is an exceptional filmmaker and storyteller, and we are excited to see him tell Frank’s story.

While we appreciate that the Kickstarter will help us with the larger project of preserving the Vault, I want to make sure everyone knows that this is NOT our project but we absolutely SUPPORT the project and Alex, and that the Zappa Family Trust will not receive any of the funds Alex raises during the Kickstarter (though if someone makes the $9 million pledge, which would obviously be awesome, a portion of that pledge will be used to purchase the house from the family at its market value).

Alongside the rest of you, we’re excited to see what Alex & his team will find.

These are some photographs of Zappa family house available through the Alex Winter kickstarter page as well as through the eBay Zf house page.

Back to the kickstarter documentary page, it is for sure worth watching the campaign launch video. Here it is too:

As far as visual art is considered the following frames are particularly intriguing.

Finally, pay attention to the Drowning Witch on the background (spot the Z roof)!
