Published Jul 15, 2015Though he's perhaps best known for his work with Fugazi (his photography appears on albums like Red Medicine and he directed the seminal Instrument documentary), Jem Cohen is also a brilliant, inventive filmmaker in his own right. He'll soon return with another feature called Counting, and a new trailer for the work has arrived today.
Once again, Counting looks like it'll demonstrate Cohen's ability for poignant visuals. The trailer is filled with evocative shots of desolate American landscapes and rundown towns.
There are plenty of musical connections, too — the clip is soundtracked by the Evens, and Patti Smith is listed as an executive producer.
Watch the trailer for Counting below. The film will premiere at New York's IFC Center on July 31, and we have no idea when the rest of us will get to see it.
