The Clash's front man from 1977 onwards, Joe Strummer had a tremendous influence on people's lives and now four years following his death British filmmaker Julien Temple has directed this documentary which reveals Joe Strummer not just as a legend or musician but as a communicator of our times.
JOE STRUMMER: THE FUTURE IS UNWRITTEN is a celebration of Joe Strummer before, during and after the Clash and includes interviews with Bono, Johnny Depp, Martin Scorsese, members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Clash
The importance of The Clash to modern music is almost impossible to overstate. One of the first bands of the punk tsunami that swept England and the US, The Clash is credited with kick starting a movement and infusing their music with elements of reggae, rockabilly, and even a little dance, leading the way to the wild genre crossovers found in today's groups. While the entire band was integral to the success of The Clash, it was their charismatic front man, Joe Strummer, who personified the mission and ideals of the burgeoning punk movement to a generation.
