“Awesome; I Fuckin' Shot That!” is a 2006 concert film of the Beastie Boys, directed by Adam Yauch. It was created by giving camcorders to 50 audience members of a sold out concert at Madison Square Garden on October 9, 2004. The audience members were instructed to keep the cameras rolling at all times. For a low budget operation, all
cameras were returned to the place of purchase for a refund. The film premiered at Sundance in 2006.
