An Eric Clapton documentary is on the way later this month.

The doco is titled Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars and is about the life of the legendary guitarist, including his personal affairs and professional development over the years.

Directed by Lili Fini Zanuck, who received an Oscar as Driving Miss Daisy‘s producer, and produced by John Battsek.

His private life “is the emotional spine of the film,” Zanuck said. The filmmakers had access to a treasure trove of home videos, which they interspersed with music and interviews

“Clapton’s music is the foundation of our film. His commitment to the blues, its traditions and originators, is absolute from his earliest days,” said Zanuck

The doco will debut later this month at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.
