Film Director Brett Morgen and Neon (Independent film production company), released the official trailer of the upcoming film dedicated to David Bowie. The documentary film, Moonage Daydream will arrive in theaters on September 16 with TV airdate expected to follow.
It will be the first officially sanctioned film ever made for the late artist. Neon said in a statement:
“Throughout his career, across generations, Bowie taught us that our differences were our strengths.
“With Moonage Daydream, Bowie provides us with a roadmap of how to survive the 21st century, inviting audiences to celebrate his legacy and enduring influence like never before.”
The story will be told through sublime, kaleidoscopic, never-before-seen footage, performances and music. The film is guided by Bowie’s own narration as per producers. In the trailer it started with the lines:
“You’re aware of a deeper existence – maybe a temporary reassurance that, indeed, there is no beginning, no end. And you find yourself struggling to comprehend a deep mystery.”
Later he says:
“Ever since I was 16 I was determined to have the greatest adventures any one person could ever have.”
While the director, Morgen, told that due to health issues, he was particularly cautious during the pandemic. He said he was:
“all alone trying to do this by myself … and yet I’m making a film on an artist whose stock in trade is how to be creative during periods of isolation. … I didn’t see anybody for the first few months of the pandemic, but I saw David’s face every day when I woke up to go to work. It was almost like it was meant to be a piece of pandemic art. That was the only way it could be finished.”
Meanwhile, the Bowie estate gave him the full privilege to do everything he wants to the movie saying:
“This isn’t David’s film. He’s not going to see it. This is David Bowie by Brett Morgen. Make it yours.’”
