Produced by musician and film director Don Letts, Strummerville charts the work of a new music foundation inspired by The Clash’s late lead singer Joe Strummer. Following his death in 2002, the charity was set up in the spirit of his name the following year to create opportunities for people through music that have the will but not the funds to further their creative talents. The documentary is spliced with previously unseen footage of the iconoclastic bellwether in concert and at home; comments on the man from the likes of Damien Hirst and Billy Bragg, and their relationship with the charity; and interviews with those who have been affected by its work. A touching tribute to a man of the people.
