Share This:

David Bowie’s 75th birthday continues to be celebrated in interesting ways. On July 28, 2022, the official trailer was released for the upcoming documentary / “not a documentary” film, Moonage Daydream, featuring never-before-seen concert footage. It’s described as “an immersive cinematic experience; an audio-visual space odyssey that not only illuminates Bowie’s enigmatic legacy but also serves as a guide to living a fulfilling and meaningful life in the 21st Century.” The film is an official selection of the 2022 Cannes Film Festival and will debut in theaters on September 16.

The movie comes from Oscar-nominated filmmaker Brett Morgen, director of, among others, Cobain: Montage of Heck., as well as The Kid Stays in the Picture, the documentary biopic about film studio exec and producer, Robert Evans.

Though the Bowie estate insists Moonage Daydream is not a documentary, we’ll let you be the judge. It is a genre-defying cinematic experience based on one of the most iconic and global rock stars of all time.

The film’s title comes from the name of his 1971 track which was included on his 1972 album, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. The movie has the full support of Bowie’s estate and features many of his greatest tracks.
