Mystify: Michael Hutchence
An intimate narrative portrait, imbued with authenticity, warmth and humour, of the internationally renowned INXS frontman, Michael Hutchence. Michael came to epitomise the very definition of leather-clad sexually magnetic rock frontman, but underneath it all, he was a poetic, multifaceted and intensely sensitive man who struggled with the idea of success and the creative limits of pop. Extraordinary archive footage, personal home movies and intimate insights from Michael’s friends, lovers, band members, family, collaborators and Hutchence himself guide us through a trajectory from unconventional fractured childhood to a charismatic, turbulent and ultimately tragic public stardom. A feature-length theatrical documentary written and directed by Richard Lowenstein, director of many of Michael’s hit music videos and the 1986 feature film, Dogs in Space, in which Michael played the lead.
