JOE STRUMMER: THE FUTURE IS UNWRITTEN
As the iconic front man of the Clash from 1977 onwards, Joe Strummer changed people's lives forever
Sixteen years after his death, his influence still reaches out around the world. In director Julien Temple’s documentary, Joe Strummer is revealed not just as a legend or musician, but as a true communicator of our times. Drawing on both a shared punk history and the close personal friendship which developed over the last years of Joe's life, Julien Temple's film is a celebration of Joe Strummer - before, during and after the Clash.
