“Colin Hay – Waiting For My Real Life” Film Documentary Trailer

COMING FEBRUARY 8th, 2017 (as well as special screenings with Colin Jan 30 in Chicago and Feb 1 in New York) COLIN HAY – WAITING FOR MY REAL LIFE tracks the life of singer-songwriter Colin Hay, from his meteoric success as the front man of Men at Work (“Down Under”), to the ensuing oblivion of obscurity and drug addiction, and his eventual rebirth as a solo artist and country singer. The documentary retraces Hay’s life, from his Scottish childhood to his Los Angeles solo acts, and paints a powerful story of an artist forced to redefine himself, in the wake of soul crushing fame. Released by Tricoast Worldwide.

Featuring interviews with Hugh Jackman, Mick Fleetwood, Sia Furler, Guy Pearce and many others.
