We Jam Econo is a full-length documentary surveying the work and influence of the 1980s American punk band the Minutemen. The film weaves insightful interviews with Mike Watt and George Hurley, two of the Minutemen's surviving members, alongside personal accounts from their peers in the music scene, including such prominent and well-regarded individuals as Jello Biafra, J Mascis, Ian MacKaye, Flea, Henry Rollins and Thurston Moore. We Jam Econo also presents rarely seen archival footage of the Minutemen's performances from concerts, as well as interviews of the band during their heyday. The film offers a glimpse into the workings of one of the most influential bands of their time, while also presenting an overview of the punk landscape during that time, by the people who made that scene thrive and resonate to this day. We Jam Econo, over two years in the making, was created by Tim Irwin (director) and Keith Schieron (producer), in association with Rocket Fuel Films.
