THEORY OF OBSCURITY: A FILM ABOUT THE RESIDENTS

Austria, Germany, Netherlands, United States | 2015 | Don Hardy Jr.

THEORY OF OBSCURITY: A FILM ABOUT THE RESIDENTS

Devo, Matt Groening, and Penn Jillette are among the fans interviewed in this new film about The Residents, the avant-garde sound and video collective that has released 60+ albums and numerous music videos, short films, and DVD’s during the last four decades. And all this time the band members have remained anonymous, thanks to the iconic eyeball masks they wear when performing. This new documentary includes archival film clips and performance footage, as well as interviews with members of their management company, The Cryptic Corporation.

Cleveland premiere. DCP. 87 min.
