No, this is not a biopic of Frank Zappa - although he’s the hero of the story.

And no, it is not a historical-sociological documentary about the great adventure of the sixties - although we have seen and reviewed the archive footage that show traces of a mythology which refers to the primal scene and which eventually reappeared in the 60s and 70s. Well, no: it is not an abstract or contemplative musical movie, although it methodically uses the same tricks to prepare the subject in a subtle form of rapture, for the great revelation on his true nature. So, if Ritual of Pope Decapitation is not a biopic, nor a documentary or a animated Mandala, it is because they gather all in one. Written as a tale, it… for whom wants to vibrate on the Big Note.‎

Ritual of Pope Decapitation is an invitation to discover a major part of US counterculture through the blooming & tragic story of Vito, Carl & Szou - aka LA Freaks - named in honor of the Tod Browning film. Unknown precursors of the hippie movement, the message of metaphysical and political freedom of the Freaks will be transfigured in the work of Frank Zappa. He forges, through his art, a poetic of animals, monsters and wandering and he revives a carnivalesque, anarchist and alchemical tradition, ranging from Rabelais and Alfred Jarry to King Kong and Koko the gorilla who speaks through by Edgar Varese and Fulcanelli, 4,928 octaves below the Big Note.‎
