DIRECTOR Lili Fini Zanuck

This deeply personal documentary traces Clapton’s five-decade career as he reflects candidly on how his life experiences were channelled into music. Through an extensive archive of performances and home movies, along with audio interviews from those who knew him best, including BB King, Jimi Hendrix and George Harrison, we come away with a deeper sense of what inspired this legendary musician.
