Throughout the film, George reveals the two distinct sides of his life: his very public music career and his private personal life that cameras never truly saw.
He was heavily involved in and dedicated to the making of this documentary before his tragic passing in 2016, making George Michael Freedom Uncut an incredibly special posthumous release and a poignant and moving tribute to his legacy.
The film delves into the turbulent period after “Faith” leading up to, during and after the making of his “Listen Without Prejudice: Vol 1” album in 1990.
At this pivotal period of his life, George is able to fight for his artistic freedom and lead the way for others.
He meets his first real love, Anselmo Feleppa and navigates both the heartbreak of Anselmo’s early tragic passing from an AIDS related illness and the devastating loss of his mother.
George Michael Freedom Uncut is also a brilliant reminder of his outstanding musical genius during the Wham! years and throughout his solo career.
The film features timeless duets with George’s favourite artists and explores how he influenced the cultural landscape of his generation as one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time.
Interwoven with exclusive, personal archival footage, this year’s theatrical release includes never-seen-before footage from one of the most iconic videos in music history, “Freedom! ’90,” directed by Oscar nominated David Fincher.
George Michael will be best remembered for his days with Andrew Ridgeley in the 80’s pop band Wham! making number one hits on just about every release, the album Fantastic released in July 1983 went triple platinum with 900.000 sales in the UK.
The band split in 1986 with a final concert at Wembley stadium saying goodbye to the fans, this though was not the end of George Michael as he pursued a career on his own, Andrew Ridgeley decided to call it a day although he continued to appear in the media.
George Michael was an instant success with number one singles and albums, sell out concerts, his voice was perfect in every way, his songs got better and better, sadly he became unwell and died from heart and liver issues on Christmas day 2016, Michael was just 53.
