New acquisition: Mystify Michael Hutchence

Mystify Michael Hutchence - Dogwoof

The newest acquisition to Dogwoof’s collection is the incredibly poignant Mystify Michael Hutchence, an intimate portrait of the frontman of renowned Australian rock band INXS.

The film, set to premiere at Tribecca Film Festival uses rare archival footage of the likes of Kylie Minogue and Paula Yates alongside interviews with the band, Hutchence’s family and loved ones to examine the deeply complex soul that was Michael Hutchence. Director Richard Lowenstein unpacks Hutchence’s complicated life, starting right from his problematic upbringing. Passionate love affairs and a successful career, a traumatic brain injury that changed his life dramatically right up to his untimely passing, the film looks into Hutchence as the emotional whirlwind that he was.
