The Documentary

225_chetzarEnter the dark and foreboding world of Chet Zar, where apocalyptic industrial landscapes are inhabited by disturbing, yet beautiful monstrosities. Sometimes gruesome, periodically funny, but always thought-provoking, Zar’s art is as enigmatic as it is frightening. But what about the man behind the paintbrush? Who is Chet Zar, and why does he like to paint monsters? These are the questions at the heart of Mike Correll’s new documentary.
