NOT A PHOTOGRAPH (2006) 69 mins. Directed by Jeff Iwanicki and David Kleiler Jr.
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.
