Not a Photograph, the documentary chronicling the re-formation of influential post-punk rockers Mission of Burma, poses the question “What happens when the most influential band you never heard reunites after 19 years?” It answers it by following the Bostonians, who are credited with impacting ’80s college rock bands like Sonic Youth and the Pixies, from their 1983 breakup to their 2002 reunion. Complete with local reports covering their disband to two decades later when they regrouped for performing live and cutting a new album, the DVD serves as an essential primer on the seminal band.
