Dir. Don Hardy, USA, video, 87 min.

Philadelphia Premiere!

For the past four decades the mysterious sound and video collective known as The Residents has continually reinvented music, theater and visual art, opening new possibilities for each artform, amassing a huge cult following along the way. Don Hardy’s new film documents the band as they embark on their 40th anniversary tour, incorporating interviews with fans (The Simpsons creator Matt Groening, members of DEVO, Primus and Ween), as well as plenty of archival footage and maybe even a few surprises.
