An honest, uncut and deeply personal autobiographical documentary of George Michael by George Michael is what you get in George Michael Freedom Uncut.
Made before his tragic death in December 2016, Michael had wanted to tell his story and to open up as to why he always felt like an outsider, unworthy of all the accolades he received in his career, and suffering from imposter syndrome, all of which he suffered from his whole life.
He was a lost soul, always felt unloved, and he desperately wanted to be loved, and found love but unfortunately it was snatched from him all too quickly and suddenly (partner Anslemo Feleppa died of AIDS just two years after they met. It was one of the most important relationships in George’s life. Not much is mentioned in the documentary, however, of his long-term relationship with Kenny Goss.
Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangalista, Ricky Gervais, Janes Corden, Tracey Emin and Cindy Crawford, among others, lovingly talk about their friendship with Michael.
The documentary explores his time with Wham and takes off once he embarks on his solo career, which turned him into an international superstar, with a voice that was as smooth and silky as butter, and movie star looks. Michael influenced the cultural landscape of his generation as one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time.
The film delves into the turbulent period after Michael’s album ‘Faith’ and his groundbreaking video ‘Freedom’ (supermodels galore). The film also delves into his lawsuit against his record companies where Michael fights for his artistic freedom, and delicately deals with his coming out after his arrest in a Los Angeles toilet.
Throughout the film, Michael reveals openly and honestly the two distinct sides of his life: his very public music career and his private personal life that cameras never truly saw. Michael was heavily involved in and dedicated to the making of this documentary before his tragic passing in 2016, when he died at the very young age of 53.
Interwoven with exclusive, personal archival footage, George Michael Freedom Uncut includes never-seen-before footage of Michael in the studio, personal moments with friends and family, and of Michael himself speaking openly and personally about his life.
The film is being released in meticulous 4K resolution.
