The film promises to be a ‘cinematic odyssey’ which explores Bowie’s creative, musical, and spiritual journey
The first full length trailer for Brett Morgen’s Moonage Daydream – the first film project about David Bowie’s life and career to be officially sanctioned by his estate – has been released today.
The film promises to be a “cinematic odyssey” which explores the artist’s “creative, musical, and spiritual journey”. With access to never-before-seen, personal archived footage, Moonage Daydream invites audiences to immerse themselves in Bowie’s psychedelic world.
It’ll be narrated by Bowie himself, and features footage of some of the musician’s most iconic performances. The film is also set to explore Bowie’s other artistic ventures, such as his work in dance, painting, sculpture, and more.
Back in 2018, filmmaker Morgen was granted unprecedented access to the Bowie archives – comprising an extensive catalogue of video footage, art, and poetry. Morgen spent four years working on the film and a further 18 months crafting the unique soundscape, animations, and colour scheme.
Moonage Daydream will debut on September 16th. Watch the new trailer above.
