A new David Bowie film is set to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival next month. Moonage Daydream is the first movie about David Bowie to be sanctioned by the late singer’s estate.
The film touts itself as an “experiential cinematic odyssey that explores Bowie’s creative, spiritual, and philosophical journey”. It features never-before-seen footage from Bowie’s personal archives and is narrated exclusively by Bowie. Nearly 50 tracks are included in the film, primarily from Bowie’s 1970 to 1977 catalogue.
Moonage Daydream was written and directed by Brett Morgan (Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck) and produced by BMG and Live Nation Productions.
It is expected to debut on HBO and HBO Max in spring 2023 AND will also have a limited IMAX release.
