ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Peter Travers / Rolling Stone
Movies like to pretend they’re different, but Random Lunacy really, truly is. The gifted
filmmakers Victor Zimet and Stephanie Silber have grabbed themselves a subject who can
wiggle off any hook, so they avoid glib judgements and do the smart thing by wiggling right
along with him. It turns out to be the only way to tell this questing, quicksilver story. The subject
is Poppa Neutrino, the name David Pearlman, now 74, has been calling himself for decades. And
since a neutrino is “a sub-atomic particle in constant motion,” the name fits. Poppa doesn’t work,
pay rent, listen to doctors or kiss institutional butt. He prefers to invent his life as he goes along,
whether he’s building a raft out of scraps and sailing the Atlantic, inventing a new football play
or touring the world from Mexico to Russia with his band, the Flying Neutrinos. But don’t
discount the intellect that Poppa uses to back up his wit and daring as leader of his tribe. That’s
right, tribe. Family is what you call the Waltons. The collection of wives, children, step-children
and believers who make up the Neutrinos defies categorization. And so, using Poppa’s own
videos to augment their tale, Zimet and Silber throw us into a life that intoxicates, infuriates and
leaves us panting for each unique and unforgettable adventure. Prepare to be wowed.

The Village Voice by Nathan Lee March 2007
"...a lively documentary portrait of old-school boho Poppa Neutrino and his peripatetic brood."

The Portland Mecury June 2007 by Courtney Ferguson
Don't miss opening night with the compelling Random Lunacy: Videos from the Road Less
Traveled, a documentary about the travels of a nomadic Dixie jazz-playing family. Led by the
charismatic Poppa Neutrino, the family builds several rafts to sail the Mississippi, joins the
circus, and plays in a band in Russia. The Neutrinos documented their exploits over the course of
20 years, resulting in a sweet, honest, and inspiring film—by far the standout of the fest.
The Oregonian June 2007 by Shawn Levy
Take opening night, for instance, when everything you might associate with the word "family"
gets tossed away like an empty gum wrapper. "Random Lunacy" is a film composed of videos
shot on the road by the Neutrinos, a self-dubbed family that's kind of like a ragtag performance
art project making its way around the world. Directors Stephanie Silber and Victor Zimet will be
on hand to offer testimony and explanations.
