'I Need a Dodge!' - a tale of Joe Strummer and his lost car

"Seven times I looked for it and I don't find it yet."

It’s 1997 and Joe Strummer is interviewed on Spanish radio. He mentions the Dodge which he had bought in Madrid 12 years earlier. One day he left the car in a carpark in central Madrid but on his return to the city, couldn't remember which one. He puts out a call to the Spanish people to help find his car.

This film discovers what Joe Strummer was doing in Madrid in 1985 while The Clash was falling apart, finds out the truth behind the production of the 091 LP and investigates what happened to his beloved Dodge.

'I Need a Dodge!' will get its world premiere at the CBGB Music & Film Festival in New York on October 11th.
