This inspiring documentary tells the story of Jail Guitar Doors, an initiative set up by Billy Bragg in commemoration of Clash musician Joe Strummer. The project provides musical instruments to prison inmates to help facilitate rehabilitation and prevent re-offending. The film features performances by 'graduates' from Jail Guitar Doors as well as from many of the artists that have supported the programme including Mick Jones (The Clash), Chris Shiflett (Foo Fighters), Sam Duckworth (Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly) and Billy Bragg himself.
This special fund raising event will include an introduction by Billy Bragg, Q&A with Alan Miles and Billy and live acoustic sets by Billy and the 'graduates' of Jail Guitar Doors.

In association with Sensoria festival of music and film.
