The BFI today host a special screening of The Clash: Westway to the World (Don Letts, 2000) to celebrate The Clash and their era-defining masterpiece London Calling, which was originally released on 14 December 1979.
The screening will be followed by a discussion with The Clash’s Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Topper Headon with the film’s director Don Letts, as well as an after party with a DJ set by Don Letts.
Letts’ Grammy-Award winning documentary Westway to the World features candid interviews with the band's four original members – Joe Strummer, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Topper Headon – as well as rarely seen archive footage, offering an illuminating insight into one of the most important and influential bands of all time.
The Clash: Westway to the World is part of BFI Southbank’s ongoing Sonic Cinema series, which explores and celebrates the intersection of film and music.
The legendary Don Letts introduced reggae to punk, managed the Slits, played music with former Clash member Mick Jones in Big Audio Dynamite and has directed videos for everyone from Jimmy Cliff to S'Express.
