First trailer for documentary exploring life of INXS’ Michael Hutchence | Watch


BBC Two will soon be airing a new documentary film ‘Mystify’ with the legendary late singer Michael Hutchence as its subject and they have now released the first trailer.

The INXS singer, who sadly lost his life in 1997, will be remembered in a series of interviews and unseen footage which as has been provided by his family. The clips include film shot by Hutchence’s late father Kell, as well as ex-girlfriend Kylie Minogue and his bandmates.

“If you’re a sensual being, all of your senses need stimulation,” Minogue is heard to say in the new clip. “A lot of it was based around pleasure… let’s face it.”

BBC Music’s head of commissioning Jan Younghusband, said: “Michael Hutchence was one of the most influential and charismatic rock stars of the modern era, and I’m delighted that this moving documentary will air on BBC 2.”

A statement said Mystify will feature “rare archive footage and intimate insights from friends, lovers, family colleagues and Hutchence himself. The film portrays his life from the beginning of his fractured family background to the peaks of rock stardom.”

Alongside Kylie Minogue, the likes of U2 lead singer Bono, surviving members of INXS, siblings Rhett and Tina, his stepmother Susie and his producer Nick Launay will all feature in the film.
