New Zappa documentary by German filmmaker

The title of the film is Eat That Question. Rolling Stone reports that the film "will allow Frank Zappa to speak for himself through archival footage."  
It is made by German filmmaker Thorsten Schütte. It will be premiered January 25th at Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. This is not to be mixed up with the film that is being made by Alex Winter. Both do have support from the Zappa Family Trust, though.

I could be wrong but I seem to remember reading that this was a documentary that Gail initially worked with and then like many things Gail did, she had a fall out with the director and later rebooted the idea with Winter. I'm not positive but it certainly wouldn't surprise me.

We do not know, but you may be right. Looking forward to see the documentary, but we are actually mostly thrilled to see some previously unreleased live footage. /Siggy, Radio Dupree
