Fugazi in Instrument
With filmmaker Jem Cohen and Fugazi guitarist/vocalist Guy Picciotto in person
Dir. Jem Cohen. 2003, 115 mins. Digital projection. With Brendan Canty, Joe Lally, Ian MacKaye. Fugazi’s DIY ethos is taken to heart in Instrument, Jem Cohen’s insightful video document of the band’s life over eleven years—from 1987 to 1998. The film, shot in numerous formats, compiles concert footage, interviews, and audience portraits spanning the range of Fugazi’s activity during the period. Instrument is a tribute not only to the band’s continued critical and popular acclaim but also to the independent music scene of Washington D.C. where Fugazi grew up and found its calling.
