The film hits theatres nationally on August 31.
Ego: The Michael Gudinski Story is the definitive account of Michael Gudinski’s rock‘n’roll life and a rare look behind the curtain of Australia’s seminal music company – the Mushroom Group. Famed for his eccentricities and boldness, the film dives into the psyche and unorthodox tactics of Michael as he became the frontman of a cultural movement and built a music empire whose artists created the soundtrack for a nation.
Helmed by one of Australia’s most acclaimed documentary and music video directors, Paul Goldman unearths the stories from some of the world’s most influential artists and a wealth of never-before-seen archive footage spanning fifty years.
Through personal accounts from Gudinski himself and his family and many artists including Jimmy Barnes, Vika & Linda Bull, Garbage, Dave Grohl, Paul Kelly, Kylie Minogue, Mark Seymour, Ed Sheeran, Bruce Springsteen, and Sting the film showcases what made Gudinski unique and his significant impact on the Australian music scene, which reverberated across the globe.
