Son of a Bug (73 minutes, video)


Son of a Bug explores issues of religious and hyphenated identities, transnationalism, memory and oral history through the story of members of Pakistan’s first rock & roll band, The Bugs, and their offspring. The film focuses on the relationship between former Bugs drummer Jumshade “Jimmy” Muzaffar and his Texas-raised son, Shams-Tabraiz, who sets out to create an oral history of his father’s former band, of which he has heard only scattered and dubious tales throughout his life.
