Scott Hicks' GLASS: A PORTRAIT OF PHILIP IN TWELVE PARTS is a mosaic film portrait of one of the greatest, and at times controversial, artists of this era.

The documentary also features performance footage of Glass' seminal collaboration with avant-guard stage director Robert Wilson (Einstein on the Beach), interviews with former wives JoAnne Akalaitis and Holly Critchlow, artist Chuck Close, musician Nico Muhly and film directors including Errol Morris, Godfrey Reggio and Martin Scorsese.

His closest friends gathered at London’s Royal Albert Hall to celebrate his life in the only way they knew how – by playing his music. The momentous evening featured George's songs, and music he loved, performed by a lineup that included Clapton, Jools Holland, Jeff Lynne, Paul McCartney, Monty Python, Tom Petty, Billy Preston, Ravi and Anoushka Shankar, Ringo Starr, Dhani Harrison and many more.
Directed by David Leland (Wish You Were Here, HBO’s Band Of Brothers and the Traveling Wilburys video “Handle With Care”), the Grammy® Award-winning CONCERT FOR GEORGE captures stunning renditions of some of the most significant music of the 20th century, including “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” (featuring Clapton on guitar, McCartney on piano and Starr on drums), “Taxman” (performed by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) and “The Inner Light” (covered by Jeff Lynne and Anoushka Shankar). Lynne, Harrison’s longtime friend and collaborator, produced the audio elements of the concert, while Clapton oversaw the entire proceedings as Musical Director."
