25 years after Freddie Mercury’s death (24.11.1991 – 24.11.2016), a team emerges, consisting of specialists of the Luxembourg film industry. Nilton Martins is the project leader and as well as him, all the other members of the team are fans of Freddy Mercury. This project presents a personal challenge for actor Nilton Martins; the role demands intensive physical and mental preparation in order to appear as much as Freddy Mercury himself. From a musical and technical aspect this is an equally demanding project (the same actor has to be filmed twice within a short period of time, special effects, costume, art department, makeup…).
Freddie Mercury gets a ghostly visit from his double in his dressing room, which brings Freddie’s fears to light and this visit is going to test him.
Freddie Mercury has rarely committed during his lifetime to his illness and sexuality - only towards the end of his career. The short film wants to show that you don’t owe an outing to anybody, until one accepts himself and his fears, as it has been the case with Freddie Mercury.
