Hello good people. We are Don, Bart and Josh - the filmmakers behind Theory of Obscurity: a film about The Residents. We've been working on this film for about a year now. We shot a bunch of shows on the 40th Anniversary WoW Tour in the US and Europe and we have interviewed more than 40 people who are connected to The Residents universe...fellow musicians, critics, fans, artists...the whole enchilada.
Enchilada Ingredients Include:
• Les Claypool - Primus
• Penn Jillette - Penn & Teller
• Matt Groening - The creator of The Simpsons
• Jerry Casale - Devo
• Chris Cutler - Henry Cow
• Jerry Harrison - Talking Heads
• Dean Ween - Ween
• John Fishman - Phish
• And much, much more
We've also earned the trust of The Residents management team at The Cryptic Corporation. The Cryptics have opened up their vaults to us and we've unearthed some real treasures. We're looking forward to sharing them with all of you.
