A documentary like no other, ‘Moonage Daydream’ is more than just a chronicle of the life and work of David Bowie. It’s a spectacular production inspired by his philosophy and cultural heritage, which works as an impressive audio-visual experience. With the blessings of the music artist’s family (who for the first time gave access to his extensive archive), the director gathered a large volume of material from never-before seen documents. In addition, he enlisted the help of Tony Visconti, legendary Bowie producer, to oversee the remastering of the songs used in the film, while months of sound editing took place. The result? A phenomenal attack on the senses that only works on the biggest screen possible and with the best speakers available. This is what’s in store for viewers of this (special) screening.
