A film by Jem Cohen and Fugazi. A visual record of music making shot over ten years - concerts, interviews, tours, practice, portraits, landscapes, studio, super 8, 16mm, video 1987 to 1997. 115 minutes
“This video features a collaboration between filmmaker Jem Cohen and the Washington D.C. band Fugazi, covering the 10 year period of 1987-1996. Far from a traditional documentary, this is a musical document; a portrait of musicians at work. The project mixes sync-sound, 16mm. Super-8 video and a wide range of archival formats, including concert footage, studio sessions practice, touring, interviews and portraits of audience members from around the country.” –Amazon.com
“An amazing documentary chronicling an amazing band. I hope that fifty years from now, this film is used as reference in a musical and even a sociological sense. Color and b+w both fit well here. The music is arresting and intense, the imagery fits the music and the pace. Anyone who likes well made documentaries should see this. Throughout the film, there are quick sketches of people in line that coincide with pieces of music. This is my favorite part. This might be hard to find, but keep an eye out for it.” --IMDB.com
There apparently is a new DVD version of this out now with some extra footage, unfortunately I do not own it. So keep in mind that this file was ripped from a VHS tape in as good quality as an analog recording will allow. Give feedback on the quality of my rip if you would like to give other potential downloaders a heads up, but remember....
This is the VHS version.
Thanks, and seed on.
