Universal Pictures is thrilled to announce that Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker Brett Morgen will visit Melbourne and Sydney next month to launch his highly anticipated MOONAGE DAYDREAM.
Moonage Daydream, Brett Morgen’s (The Kid Stays in the Picture, Cobain: Montage of Heck, Jane) feature length experiential cinematic odyssey, explores Bowie’s creative, musical and spiritual journey. Told through sublime, kaleidoscopic, never-before-seen footage, performance and music, the film is guided by Bowie’s narration and is the first film to be officially sanctioned by Bowie’s estate.
Designed from conception as a unique cinematic experience, the film will debut in Australia at the Melbourne International Film Festival where Brett will present the film and participate in a MIFF Talks Masterclass with host Zan Rowe. This will be followed by a visit to Sydney for a further series of screening events and press opportunities.
Moonage Daydream illuminates the life and genius of David Bowie, one of the most prolific and influential artists of our time. The motion picture reveals the celebrated icon through his own voice and features 48 musical tracks, mixed from their original stems.
Moonage Daydream premiered as an official selection at Cannes where it received rapturous reviews. Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian gave the film 5 stars, calling it a “Glorious shape shifting eulogy to the man.” Owen Gleiberman of Variety wrote, “Evoke[s] the most legendary landmarks of film.”
