Theory of Obscurity tells the story of the renegade sound and video collective known as The Residents. Many details surrounding the group are secret, including the identities of its members. They always perform wearing masks and costumes, which is part of their magic. Through fly-on-the-wall observations and candid interviews, this film tells the story of a group that has always played by its own set of rules. The film travels with the Residents around the U.S. and Europe during their 40th anniversary tour as they staged their elaborate productions, shooting more than twenty performances and also capturing rare behind-the-scenes moments.

Director Don Hardy and special guests will appear in person.

A Film Movement release.
