In this exclusive clip from the upcoming feature documentary, we see talking heads Elton John, Mark Ronson, John Paul Gaultier, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell amongst others discuss the genius behind George’s concept for the iconic Freedom! ’90 music video.

In the clip, Elton John sums up the pioneering spirit of the video, “It changed the whole face of how videos were done. The video said everything. It was genius and it was a revolutionary thing.” 

Naomi Campbell adds, “George pitched it to me in L.A. and his exact words were ‘You’re the leader of the gang and unless you say yes, the rest of the girls won’t.’”

The Freedom! ’90 music video was directed by David Fincher and a 4K remastered version of the full video will play out before the main feature in cinemas worldwide on June 22.

Sony Music Entertainment and Trafalgar Releasing today launched the exclusive first look clip for George Michael Freedom Uncut, a deeply autobiographical feature documentary narrated by the late Grammy® Award winner. A poignant and moving tribute to the legacy of one of Britain’s greatest performers, in his final work George Michael reclaims the narrative of his career, personal life and controversies in collaboration with co-director, producer and friend David Austin. This feature-length documentary will be released as a global cinema event on Wednesday 22nd June.

Throughout the film, 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 tragic passing in 2016, making GEORGE MICHAEL FREEDOM UNCUT an incredibly special posthumous release and a poignant and moving tribute to his legacy.

The documentary features a slew of famous faces, contributors include George Michael, Stevie Wonder, Sir Elton John, Ricky Gervais, Nile Rogers, Mark Ronson, Tracey Emin, Liam Gallagher, Mary J. Blige, Jean Paul Gaultier, James Corden, Tony Bennett, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista and Tatjana Patitz.

Produced by Big Geoff Overseas Limited in conjunction with Sony Music Entertainment and distributed theatrically worldwide by Trafalgar Releasing.

GEORGE MICHAEL FREEDOM UNCUT will be screening in cinemas worldwide on Wednesday 22nd June.

George’s third studio album Older will be re-released on vinyl later this year on Friday 8th July as part of a box set which also includes an Upper vinyl, an essay recounting stories behind the album and previously unseen photos. Available for pre-order here.
