Word! Check out what’s coming on at The Cube Microplex on 20th October. It’s only Instrument, un film de Jem Cohen et Fugazi!
So much <3 for The Cube. Every city needs a small, independent, volunteer run cinema, open to running as varied a program of interesting films, gigs, performances etc as it’s humanly possible to do. I helped put on a screening of Earthlings there a couple of years ago (cuz no one else would do) & it’d be such a travesty if it doesn’t raise the money it needs to buy the building.
This documentary 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.
