Upcoming George Michael Freedom Uncut

I had no idea this doc was in the works. It looks fantastic!

What a coincidence I just discovered this as I was just recently listening to Mary J. Blige's collab with him doing a cover of Stevie Wonders' "As".

Isn’t this a couple years old? This looks exactly like the doc I watched a couple years ago.

That's what I was wondering. Didn't this air on British TV a few years ago and now it's being screened in North America?

Might be a different newer one. One of my local theaters already pre-selling tickets for it and says it's coming out on June 22.

R3 here, either that or they're re-showing it in honor of Pride month

I saw tonight's screening, it is fantastic! This version (uncut) has 40 minutes additional footage that was cut television version.

He was not uncut.

He was working on it before he died. So some of it is dated, some updated. Curious to see it.

They are having additional screenings this weekend in Southern California. Check the website to see if it's playing near you.

This is the same film that was released a few years ago with a bit of extra footage. The state are trying to pass this off as something brand new, useless fuckers that they are. The best thing that could happen to George’s music is for the estate to sell it on and let people who know what they are doing deal with it.

He's a Brit so naturally its uncut.

R11 many dataloungers who actually saw it would beg to differ with you

R9 I think it’s that friend of his David Austen running the music side of the estate. Not sure either that is the right person to be handling it all.

R9 40 mins is not a bit of extra footage.

R9

The directors are credited as “George Michael and David Austin” and when shown on TV in 2017, Freedom ran for 95 minutes. Then in 2018 a ‘Director’s Cut’ version, which ran for 114 minutes, was screened at over 25 festivals, including the Edinburgh International Film Festival and the Raindance Film Festival. It won a total of five ‘Best Documentary’ awards. The newly announced Freedom Uncut runs for 108 minutes, meaning it’s actually six minutes shorter than the Director’s Cut shown in those festivals in 2018.
