Ian MacKaye, of Fugazi and Minor Threat fame, was asked to introduce a music movie at the Maryland Film Festival and instead of choosing a documentary about a hard-core band, or a straight-edge scene in Japan, he decided on Nina Simone: La Legende, a not-often seen made for TV film devoted to the singer so well known for her deeply emotional and confessional songs.

MacKaye is going to speak after the screening, and discuss the film with the audience.
