The Future is Unwritten - Joe Strummer
Director: Julien Temple

UK, 2007, 123 min., lith. subt.
As the front man of the Clash from 1977 onwards, Joe Strummer changed people's lives forever. A musical icon and political activist, Strummer was never shy about saying what was on his mind and meaning it. He was a voice of a generation, which still resonates today.

The biopic contains never seen before footage of Joe Strummer including studio sessions, archive and early childhood footage, interviews with Strummer disciples such as Martin Scorsese, Bono, members of Red Hot Chilli Peppers, friends new and old. Also containing candid interview with Mick Jones, Topper Headon and other members of Joe's musical career.

Drawing on both a shared punk history and the close personal friendship that developed over the last years of Joe's life, Julien Temple's film is a celebration of Joe - before, during and after the Clash.
