HIC is delighted to be hosting Doc’Roll Film Festival, the UK’s celebration of music documentaries, for a second year. Doc’n Roll Film Festival is supported by the BFI using funds from the National Lottery to grow audience appetite and enjoyment for a wide range of independent British and international films.

From an early age, Eric Clapton was captivated by the blues. As he says of his lifelong fascination: “”It was always one man with his guitar versus the world. He was completely alone and had no options other than to just sing and play to ease his pain.”” In this unflinching and deeply personal documentary, director Lili Fini Zanuck (Oscar winner, Driving Miss Daisy) traces Clapton’s five-decade career as he reflects candidly on how his life experiences were channeled into music.

Through an extensive archive of performances and home movies, along with audio interviews from those who knew him best-George Harrison and Steve Winwood, among others-we come away with a deeper sense of what inspired the legendary musician and his unforgettable work.
