“The Rise And Fall Of The Clash” is a new documentary directed by Danny Garcia and co-produced by David Mingay (Rude Boy) and Robin Banks, that tells the inside story on the collapse of one of the most influential bands of the 77 UK explosion – THE CLASH.
The movie premiered at “CBGB Festival” on July 5th, 2012.
Here’s the official word:
Made for release on DVD and to selected TV networks worldwide, The Rise And Fall Of The Clash features previously unseen footage of the band at work and at play, interviews with the individual band members and with those who knew them well, and traces the downward trajectory of a band who were at one point “the biggest band in the world”. This is not a film that pulls any punches, but neither does it overlook the life-changing effect that The Clash brought to so many. Over 90 minutes it paints the fascinating inside story of rival, treachery and betrayal, and the internal band dynamics and managerial interference that ultimately led The Clash to self-destruct.
