An official first-look clip from the debut, band-sanctioned Led Zeppelin documentary, Becoming Led Zeppelin, has been released online after it was shared during the Venice Film Festival on Saturday (September 4).

The all-too-brief, just-under-a-minute trailer comprises a teasing archival montage, splicing together some live show action with footage of a zeppelin, which takes flight before bursting into flames while the film’s title crops up on screen.
