Description: Oklahoma City's Flaming Lips have been producing thoughtful art-rock records for two decades, continually challenging themselves and their critics. Led by charismatic, workaholic frontman Wayne Coyne, The Flaming Lips continually push the boundaries of modern music. This new documentary, 15 years in the making, is a personal voyage with the band through both pain and glory. Director Brad Beesley combines never-before-seen footage of the band with new interviews and performances to chronicle the band's journey from their early punk/noise phase through the endless tours and bizarro live shows that led up to the critical breakthrough for the albums 'Soft Bulletin' and the Grammy-winning 'Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots.' Beesley's candid exposť of his subjects also includes a behind-the-scenes look at Coyne's demented attempt to make the no-budget sci-fi feature film 'Christmas on Mars,' and much much more!
