About:
An intimate, revealing musical odyssey on the life and career of the guitar legend, told by those who have known him best.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Over a five-decade career, Eric Clapton has proven himself to be a guitar virtuoso, creating rock music deeply influenced by the blues. In Zanuck’s documentary, he reflects candidly on how his life experiences were channeled into music. The film traces his career through The Yardbirds, Cream, Blind Faith, Derek and the Dominos, and his solo years, telling the stories behind hits like “For Your Love,” “Layla,” and “Tears in Heaven.” Filmmaker Lili Fini Zanuck draws from an extensive archive of performances and home movies to construct the film. Accompanying the footage are illuminating audio interviews with Clapton and people who played central roles in his life, including his grandmother Rose Clapp, George Harrison, Ahmet Ertegun, Steve Winwood, and his former wife Pattie Boyd.
