Not a Photograph2006

  • 4.0
NOT A PHOTOGRAPH documents the resurrection of the seminal post-punk band Mission of Burma, as well as their humble beginnings in Boston. For a band deemed too ahead-of-their-time during their initial existence, NOT A PHOTOGRAPH follows Mission of Burma's 2002 reunion and their struggle to breathe new life into a tale thats already been written in rocks history books. NOT A PHOTOGRAPH also features early footage from 1979 through the early 80s, a time before compact discs and MTV, when rock & roll still had some tricks up its sleeve and when a group of smart, young artist/musicians formed a band The New Yorker labeled the most criminally undersung band of the 1980s.

What makes this film worth watching?

"This music documentary about three (sometimes four) self-depreciating Boston guys who never in a million years expected to be making music in 2002, to say nothing of 2006, is a great story with a real arc." - Jim Sullivan, The Boston Phoenix
