Documentary about George Michael to be released in JuneGeorge Michael Freedom Uncut is the final work of the iconic pop musician which will be premiered worldwide on 22 June 2022.

Co-directed by George Michael and his friend David Austin, and narrated by George, the story features contributions from other pop legends such Stevie Wonder, Sir Elton John,  Nile Rodgers, Mark Ronson, Liam Gallagher, Mary J. Blige, and Tony Bennett as well as fashion icons Jean Paul Gaultier, Naomi Campbell and Linda Evangelista. The film delves into the period following the release of the artist’s debut solo album Faith. Defined by emotional turbulence, the narrative is interspersed with pivotal events, showing different facets of George’s life.

Revealing an unseen and private side to Michael’s life, Freedom Uncut presents a “collage” of personal archival footage. It also contains bits and pieces of backstage videos that were made during the work on Freedom! ’90, directed by David Fincher.

George was both heavily involved in and dedicated to the production of this film before his sudden death in 2016, making this a very special posthumous release and a moving tribute to his legacy.

Tickets for the screening will be on sale from 27 April. More information is on the official documentary website.
