Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars


(2017) 135 mins

Director: Lili Fini Zanuck


A  Life In 12 Bars is told through Clapton’s own words and songs.  It features extensive interviews with Clapton himself, along with his family, friends, musical collaborators, contemporaries and heroes — including late music icons B.B. King, Jimi Hendrix and George Harrison.

Spanning more than half a century of legendary popular musical innovation, the film contextualizes Eric Clapton’s role in contemporary music and cultural history.  “This rare and deeply intimate film reflects on Clapton’s traumatic childhood, his long and difficult struggle with drugs and alcohol and the tragic loss of his son and how he always found his inner strength and healing in music.”
