“Moonage Daydream” will soon premiere in Australia, with director Brett Morgen set to attend evening screenings and Q&A sessions in Sydney and Melbourne.
The film charts David Bowie’s creative, musical and spiritual journey via never-before-seen footage, performances and music.
Its name is derived from Bowie’s 1971 song of the same name.
It took Morgen (“The Kid Stays in the Picture”, “Cobain: Montage of Heck” and “Jane”) five years to produce the film and is the first to be officially sanctioned by Bowie’s estate. He was granted access to Bowie’s archives in 2017 and presented with master recordings and never-before-seen 35mm and 16 mm reels of performances.
All of Bowie’s music for the film has been remixed from the original stems into Dolby Atmos.
The Sydney screenings will take place at VMAX at Event Cinemas on George Street on Monday, Aug. 15 and Tuesday, Aug. 16.
Tickets are available to the “Moonage Daydream” screenings in Sydney on the Event Cinemas website.
Morgen will also introduce the film and participate in Q&A sessions at the Melbourne International Film Festival on Friday, Aug. 12, Saturday, Aug. 13. and Sunday, Aug. 14. Details and tickets are available via the Melbourne International Film Festival.
The film then hits cinemas nationwide on Sept. 15.
