Director Jem Cohen’s relationship with Ian MacKaye, member of the post-hardcore band, Fugazi, goes back to the 1970s during their high school years in Washington, D.C. Thirty years later, Cohen and Fugazi are reunited in the production of Instrument, a documentary film about the band named after a song on their 1993 album, In on the Kill Taker. Shot over the course of ten years, from 1987 through 1998 on Super 8, 16mm and video, and edited by both Cohen and the band, the film collages footage from concerts, interviews, practices, tours, and studio recording sessions for their 1995 album,Together. Instrument is more than a straight-forward documentary, it is a unique collaboration, a musical exposition of a band at work, and a portrait of musicians immersed in their art.
