Michael Jackson: The Life of An Icon Documentary Preview [Video]

Two years on from his unexpected death in June 2009, upcoming documentary Michael Jackson: The Life of An Icon promises to give an intimate, behind-the-scenes view of the legendary pop icon as his 50+ of his friends, family, peers and associates, including Michael Jackson’s mother Katherine, brother Tito, sister Rebbie and more, share their stories of the iconic singer’s life – from his early Jackson 5 beginnings, his upbringing in Gary, Indiana and family relationships, to his court cases, right up to his final moments.

“I have tried to show Michael in a truly unique light,” says the DVD’s producer and close friend of MJ, David Gest. “I have spent the past fifteen months travelling the world interviewing people who were most important in his life. I believe this film will entertain and educate in equal measures about who the real Michael Jackson was.

“I hope this will serve as a lasting testament to the compassion and love that he had for all mankind. He was a very complex individual and this film reveals the many different facets of his personality.”

Michael’s mother Katherine describes the DVD as “a truly remarkable film that captures the true character, wit and sensitivity of my son,” adding, “Producer David Gest takes you on an emotional roller coaster that will bring people to tears as well as really understand who the man behind the music was and is.”

Directed by Andrew Eastel and including performance footage and unseen family photos, the DVD is released on DVD and Blu-ray™ on October 31st 2011 through Universal Pictures International Home Entertainment – check out a preview clip below.
