Eric Clapton has long been considered the ultimate guitar hero, but behind the scenes lay restlessness and tragedy. As he constantly quit bands, from the ground-breaking Yardbirds to super-group Cream, Clapton’s pursuit of perfection and fear of selling out has left fans surprised and disappointed. Stretching from his traumatic childhood living in a ‘house of secrets’ to his long struggle with drugs and the tragic loss of his son, this new documentary shows how Clapton has always found an inner strength and healing in music.

Followed by a conversation with Eric Clapton and director Lili Fini Zanuck, live from BFI Southbank.
