A Tribute to Joe Strummer

featuring “Westway To The World” Don Letts’ biography of The Clash plus numerous shorts and videos featuring Joe and the Clash including “Save GLR Gig at 100 Club” (Diana Adams).

The first show on 22 January was our Tribute To Joe Strummer. Over 600 people turned up and we projected the film in the atrium as well as the Cinema Room.

Don Letts brought along a Special Selection of Clash videos and the never before seen “Clash On Broadway” (we also showed the classic “Westway To The World”- premiered at the Portobello film Festival two years ago), Diana Adams brought along “Joe and Bez from Happy Mondays at the Save GLR Party” and Smash brought footage of Joe at the Japanese Fugi Festival last year (playing “Brand New Cadillac”) and backstage at Glastonbury-Strummerville- with Kieth Allen and Damien Hirst.

Joes’s politics and philosophy informs everything the Portobello Film Festival does. We would not exist without him. He will be sadly missed. Let’s make “Hitsville UK” a film and video reality!
