Filmmaker Julien Temple has spent much of his career documenting the music scene in England, including such seminal works as THE GREAT ROCK AND ROLL SWINDLE and THE FILTH AND THE FURY about the Sex Pistols. In 1976 he had originally set out to do a film about a different British punk band, the Clash; more than 30 years later, he directed THE FUTURE IS UNWRITTEN, a heartfelt film about of one of the leaders of the Clash, his good friend Joe Strummer. Born John Graham Mellor in Turkey in 1952, Strummer, the son of a career diplomat, traveled a great deal as a child, eventually settling down in England, where he became an artist and a musician and took part in the mid-1970s squatters' movement in London. He soon formed the influential punk band the Clash with Mick Jones and later headed the band Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros before his tragic death in 2002 from congenital heart disease. THE FUTURE IS UNWRITTEN is a marvelous look at yet another major musical figure who died too soon.
