A beautiful mix of visuals shot in 16mm, Super 8 and video melds with sync and non-sync soundtracks by the legendary Washington D.C. band Fugazi in the stunning documentary, Instrument. Wholly original, you wouldn’t expect Fugazi to do anything traditional and their documentary is no exception. Covering a ten year period, from 1987-1997, Instrument provides access to stage shows, rehearsals, recording sessions and interviews with fans (and some who aren’t). It extends beyond a portrait of a band and bleeds into a specific time period in music that is so close to many hearts. Named after one of the songs on their 1993 album In On the Kill Taker, the documentary also spawned one of the best soundtracks in history.
