Yesterday evening Mystify Michael Hutchence played in cinemas nationwide to a flurry of positive response and heightened emotion (more than a few tears were shed for Michael!). Not only were fans of documentary and INXS alike able to see an exclusive preview of the film, but they also watched the accompanying filmed Q&A between Richard Lowenstein (Director), Dylan Jones (Editor of GQ) and Chris Thomas (Music Producer).
The film dives deep into the tumultuous life of bona fide Rock God Michael Hutchence. Throughout the Dogwoof Mystify campaign, INXS fans have turned out in their droves to support the memory of Michael. A great critical reaction to the film, unusual in it’s proximity to the subject (Richard Lowenstein was a long-time friend and music video director of Michael’s), means that previews were a great success!
