Michael White might just be the most famous person you’ve never heard of. A notorious London theatre and film impresario, playboy, gambler, bon vivant, and eccentric friend of the rich and famous, Michael transformed Britain’s cultural scene in the 1970s, producing over 200 shows and movies including Oh! Calcutta!, The Rocky Horror Show and Monty Python’s The Holy Grail, as well as introducing Merce Cunningham, Pina Bausch and Yoko One to London audiences.
In this intimate documentary, filmmaker Gracie Otto introduces us to this larger-than-life character, featuring interviews with many of his closest friends including Yoko Ono, Anna Wintour, Kate Moss, John Waters, Barry Humphries and, of course, the man himself.
