Described as an immersive cinematic experience, Moonage Daydream is coined from Bowie’s 1971 song of the same name. It is written, directed, and edited by Brett Morgan, who is also serving as a producer. He spent four years developing the project and nearly two years designing the soundscape, animations, and color pallet.
Through the sublime, kaleidoscopic imagery, personal archived footage, unseen performances, and anchored by David Bowie’s own music and words,” reads the synopsis. “The film invites the audiences to immerse themselves in the unique world that is Bowie. Throughout his career, across generations, Bowie taught us that our differences were our strengths. With MOONAGE DAYDREAM, Bowie provides us with a road map of how to survive the 21st century, inviting audiences to celebrate his legacy and enduring influence like never before.”
The docufilm features captivating never-before-seen footage and performances spanning David Bowie’s illustrious 54 year-career. The film includes 40 exclusively remastered Bowie songs.
