Joe Strummer: The Future is Unwritten (15)
Saturday 25 January at 7pm, running time 123 minutes

To celebrate the launch of the Newport Rock Collecting exhibition at Newport Museum and Art Gallery in July 2020, (visit www.rockcollecting.co.uk for more info) join us on Saturday January 25th 2020, for a free public screening of Joe Strummer: The Future is Unwritten.


It’s well known that Joe Strummer spent time in Newport before his rise to fame. As the frontman of the Clash from 1977 onwards, Joe Strummer changed people's lives forever.  Since his death, his influence continues to reach out around the world, more strongly now than ever before. In "The Future Is Unwritten", from British film director Julien Temple, 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.
