I Need a Dodge! Joe Strummer on the Run (2014)
Director: Nick Hall
67 minutes
English and Spanish; Turkish and English subtitles


It’s 1997 and ex-Clash singer Joe Strummer is interviewed live on Spanish Radio 3 from Glastonbury Festival. During the interview he mentions his Dodge, which he bought in Madrid 12 years earlier and later left in one of the city’s car parks but was unable to remember which one. A call is put out for the people of Madrid to search the local car parks for the missing car.

The documentary looks at the period when, after eight intense years in the media spotlight, Strummer was forced to choose a new path. It aims to discover what initially drew him to Spain with The Clash falling apart, and investigates his relationship with the local band 091 as well as what happened to his beloved Dodge.


Co-founder and lead singer of British punk rock band The Clash, this screening is organized in celebration of Joe Strummer’s birthday, having passed away in 2002, would have turned 63 this year.
