The official trailer for MYSTIFY MICHAEL HUTCHENCE has dropped ahead of its Australian premiere at Sydney Film Festival later this week. The film will show in Australian cinemas from 4 July.
The feature documentary from acclaimed filmmaker Richard Lowenstein (Dogs In Space), shows extraordinary, never seen archival footage tapping into a trove of home videos, concert material, publicity interviews and recording sessions, alongside faithful insights from friends, lovers, family, colleagues and Michael Hutchence himself.
After seeing the film, Tim Farriss said “I saw MYSTIFY with Kirk Pengilly & brother Jon Farriss, an epic work by our old friend Richard Lowenstein who was such a huge part of our lives and very close to Michael (pictured at top with Hutchence). It was a very emotional ride, but Richard and his team handled it beautifully as only he really could and told us a bit of what to expect as we sat in the cinema before the lights went down. It’s an enlightening story about Michael ‘The Man’ with all the complexities of a remarkable life & hopefully Michael can now finally rest in peace… To Richard, Lynn-Maree Milburn, Andrew de Groot & all involved, we thank you…”
Richard Lowenstein directed the majority of both INXS and Michael’s music videos and the 1986 feature film, Dogs in Space, in which Michael played the lead.
