Brett Morgen / DE, US, 2022 / 135 min.
In Moonage Daydream documentary maker Brett Morgen opens a treasure trove of previously unseen film material from and of pop phenomenon David Bowie. Morgen edited concert footage, interviews and other finds into a hallucinatory trip through Bowie’s continuously changing universe.
In 2017, the year after David Bowie’s death, his heirs gave Morgen access to the star’s personal archive. The filmmaker, who previously created the idiosyncratic Cobain: Montage of Heck (2015), about Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain, spent the next five years working with Bowie’s audio-visual legacy.
