The documentary George Michael Freedom Uncut is available now on digital from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
In the deeply autobiographical feature documentary narrated by the late Grammy Award winner, 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 passing in 2016.
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, Michael 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.
The film is also a reminder of Michael’s musical genius during the Wham! years and throughout his solo career. It features duets with Michael’s favorite 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, the release includes never-seen-before footage from one of the most iconic videos in music history, “Freedom! ’90,” directed by Oscar-nominated David Fincher.
The documentary will be available for the first time to audiences worldwide in 4K.
