Of Montreal Documentary – The Past is a Grotesque Animal


The Past is a Grotesque Animal is a rock documentary directed by Jason Miller following the exploits of Of Montreal and Kevin Barnes. The project was funded directly by Of Montreal’s fans through a successful Kickstarter campaign. The film attempts to provide an honest window into Barne’s creative life and his relationships through his quest to create transcendent music. The documentary’s rights were recently acquired by Oscilloscope Laboratories
