Neon Unspools New Footage For David Bowie Cannes Film ‘Moonage Daydream’, Eyes Falls Release – CinemaCon

Neon rocked CinemaCon with lots of Bowie in never before seen clips for Brett Morgen’s Moonage Daydream. The pic, debuting next month at Cannes in the Midnight Screening series, follows the iconic musician that’s a summation of over 5 million assets including a master recording and concert footage and features 48 of his musical tracks, mixed from their original stems. The movie took five years to produce.

Morgen (Cobain: Montage of HeckJane) explores the iconic performer’s creative, musical and spiritual journey and genius of Bowie across various disciplines, most notably music and film but also dance, painting, sculpture, video and audio collage, screenwriting, acting and live theatre.

Those in the room got to see the music video for Bowie’s “Hallo Spaceboy,” which was filled with the singer’s dance-electronic pop-space coolness. Then a Bowie interview was shown. “I love live very much indeed.”  It’s sonic, something that has to be seen on the big screen.

Moonage Daydream, the first David Bowie documentary sanctioned by his estate.

Morgen said that he’s a longtime Bowie acolyte. “When I was 11 or 12,  I began asking myself, ‘Why am I different?’ It was then I first discovered David Bowie. He showed me it was ok to be myself. That my differences are my strengths. That was radical then. Now, it’s mainstream. That is why David Bowie is the perfect star for this moment.”

The director continued, “It’s hard to describe Bowie to people. Bowie cannot be defined. He can be experienced. That is why we crafted Moonage Daydream to be an experience.”

“We remastered the music so each one of your theaters can provide experiences that audiences have never heard before.” He said he spent two years scrolling through every piece of material in the Bowie archives to find the best and rarest.”

The pic is getting a September release.
