Hit after hit – “Club Tropicana,” “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go,” “Freedom,” “I’m Your Man,” and of course “Last Christmas.”

Their time in the spotlight was white-hot, becoming the very first Western pop act to play in China.It was a time that both encapsulated and epitomized not just their youth, but also those of the many millions of fans that adored them. 

WHAM! is a feature-length documentary that captures this magical time, from director Chris Smith (Tiger King, Sr.) and producers John Battsek (The Deepest Breath) and Simon Halfon (Supersonic).

With unprecedented access to both George and Andrew’s personal archive including remarkable and never-before-seen footage, alongside rare, candid, and previously unheard interviews, WHAM! charts their incredible journey from school friends to superstars.
