Bowie On Film

As the recent documentary MOONAGE DAYDREAM has helped to shift cultural focus on the musical and visual legacy of David Bowie in the six years since his passing, his particular and provocative cinematic body of work has been calling out for proper examination. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of Bowie’s first steps on the path of rock star destiny — and in celebration of the life of one of the most fascinating artistic polymaths of the 20th century — we’re quite pleased to present several of the distinctive and enduring performances that Bowie gave during his time as an actor and subject. Historical figures, otherworldly beings, terrors and triumphs all brought to life in a medium that specializes in the intersection of myth and history — image (and Image) refracted against a vast screen, infinite possibilities glimmering in the light of collective dreams.
