Manchester cinemas screening new George Michael documentary

George Michael Freedom Uncut aims to celebrate the life and music of a true British superstar. The deeply personal two hours will reveal the private life behind the public persona through archive footage of the singer’s life. Before his death on Christmas Day in 2016, the former member of Wham! was heavily involved in the making of the documentary.

The Faith and Careless Whisper singer narrates throughout, telling cinemagoers of the highs and lows he experienced across three and a half decades in the industry. Beginning at the point his first solo album, Faith, was released in 1987, the story explores the battles George had with his music company as he fought for more freedom to manage his own image. One of the more emotional parts of the film saw the man who earned seven UK number ones talk about losing the first real love of his life, Anselmo Feleppa, to an AIDS-related illness in 1993.
