Six years after David Bowie died, fans are being treated to a new feature-length movie about his life and art.

Moonage Daydream is a genre defying immersion into the art and sounds of Bowie, one of the most prolific and influential artists of our time.

Told through sublime, kaleidoscopic, never-before-seen footage, performances and music, the movie is a cinematic odyssey into Bowie’s creative, musical and spiritual journey.

The film is guided by David Bowie’s own narration and is the first officially sanctioned film on the artist.

It’s supported by the David Bowie Estate, which granted director Brett Morgen (The Kid Stays in the Picture, Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, Jane) unprecedented access to their collection.

In 2017, the estate presented Morgen with over 5 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 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.
