A striking portrait of the noise rock band Fugazi.

For ten years the filmmaker, Jem Cohen, followed the noise rock band Fugazi on tour, in the studio and during rehearsals. Naturally, the film includes recordings of the group’s boisterous performances but also provides a look behind the scenes. The group members’ DIY lifestyle was legendary as was their steadfast policy to charge low admission prices. But Fugazi was more. The source of their rage was society’s commercialization, the corrupt music industry and diseased political power.
Instrument is an encounter at the crossroads of film, music and rebellion.
