A new documentary covering the span of George Micheal’s career will air on BBC Brit (DStv 120) on Sunday 22 October at 21:00.
George Michael: Freedom was filmed before Michael’s untimely death and is narrated by the singer, who was heavily involved in the making of the film that serves as his final work.
It concentrates on the formative period in the late Grammy® Award winner’s life and career, leading up to and following the making of his acclaimed, best-selling album Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 and his subsequent, infamous High Court battle with his record label that followed, while also becoming poignantly personal about the death of his late partner and first love, Anselmo Feleppa.
The doccie features incredible, unseen archival and private home-footage, giving viewers a first-person account of this dramatic period in his life.
It includes the original five supermodels from Oscar-nominated director David Fincher’s Freedom! ’90 video who came together for the first time to discuss their experience on the iconic music video.
The film also features interviews with some of Michaels’ most famous friends and music legends, including Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Ricky Gervais, Nile Rodgers, Mark Ronson, Tracey Emin, Liam Gallagher, Mary J. Blige, Jean- Paul Gaultier, James Corden and Tony Bennett.
