Watch the trailer for new David Bowie documentary Moonage Daydream
By Classic Pop | May 24, 2022
A trailer has arrived for a new documentary about David Bowie, Moonage Daydream.
Directed by Brett Morgen (The Kid Stays In The Picture, Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck, Jane) the movie promises to present “a genre defying immersion into the art and sounds of David Bowie.”
Considered one of the greatest artists of our time, David Bowie has been moving culture for over 50 years. Moonage Daydream is the first film to be supported by the David Bowie Estate, which granted Morgen unprecedented access to their collection.
Told through kaleidoscopic imagery, personal archived footage, unseen performances, and anchored by Bowie’s own music and words, Moonage Daydream, the press release states, “invites audiences to immerse themselves in the unique world that is ‘Bowie’”.
In 2017, the estate presented Morgen with over five million assets. Included in the collection were rare and never-before seen drawings, recordings, films, and journals. Morgen spent four years assembling the film and another 18 months designing the soundscape, animations, and colour palette.
For the film, the sound team – featuring David Bowie’s long-time collaborator, friend and music producer Tony Visconti and Academy Award-winning sound mixer Paul Massey (Bohemian Rhapsody) – remixed and translated Bowie’s original stems for a theatrical environment that will be presented in 12.0, 5.0, Atmos, and 7.1/5.1.
Moonage Daydream is in cinemas worldwide from September 2022.
