A screening inspired by the Arlington Reads 2012 fiction title “A Visit from the Goon Squad,” which includes scenes from the San Francisco punk scene of the 1970s, the Library presents  ”Instrument – Ten Years with the Band Fugazi :  A Film by Jem Cohen and the Washington D.C. Band Fugazi.”

The film covers the legendary band Fugazi from 1987-1996. Far from a traditional documentary, this is 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.
