Freedom Uncut: George Michael’s final work to screen at Event Cinemas in June

In June this year, Event Cinemas in Glendale will screen the long-awaited George Michael documentary, Freedom Uncut.

Filmed before Michael’s untimely passing, the documentary promises a never-seen-before focus on the formative period in the late Grammy Award winner’s life and career.

The posthumous release offers a behind the scenes look at the making of his acclaimed, best-selling album Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 and the infamous High Court battle with his record label that followed.

Audiences will also get an insight into the impact the death of his first love, Anselmo Feleppa, had on the megastar and offer a backstage pass to the making of the Freedom! ’90 video clip that featured supermodels Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford, Tatjana Patitz and Linda Evangelista.

Narrated by George Michael himself, the film leans heavily on George’s incredible, unseen archival and private home footage, giving viewers a first-person account of this dramatic period in his life, revealing how he became one of the most influential recording artists of all time, who alone fought a corner for all artists by challenging the standard recording contract helping to rewrite the rules of the music industry.

During one of the interviews in the film, George also talks about why he stepped out of the limelight and turned his back on celebrity. 

George Michael Freedom Uncut will begin screening at Event Cinemas in Glendale on Wednesday 22 June. For more information and tickets visit eventcinemas.com.au
