Instrument: Ten Years with the Band Fugazi

An analysis of the film, “Instrument: Ten Years with the Band Fugazi”, directed by Jem Cohen.

The paper shows that the film “Instrument: Ten Years with the Band Fugazi”, directed by Jem Cohen at first seems to have no particular perspective upon its subject. It discusses however that when a viewer looks at the film more closely and carefully applies a critical cinematic eye to the filmmaking process, a solidified interpretation begins to become clear. The author of the paper shows that by not having an ostentatiously obvious “take” on this punk band and the particular music the band has produced, the director has revealed his own moral orientation in favor of personal simplicity and a lack of hype in the production of music. He shows too that the director has chosen to focus on the band because Fugazi is one of the supreme manifestations of the punk scene, a scene that emerged as a radical movement in youth music but largely became commercialized but Fugazi stands apart in sharp contrast to all of descents into commercialization, however, and still remains pure and true to its roots.
