Hull Independent Cinema: Moonage Daydream

Thursday 17 Nov @ Vue Cinema, Princes Quay Shopping Centre, Hull, HU1 2PQ

Hull Independent Cinema presents ‘Moonage Daydeam’ at Vue Cinema.

Documentarist Brett Morgen spent five years going through David Bowie’s personal libraries, master recordings, and archives, as sanctioned by the late musician’s estate, in the hope of understanding and deconstructing the musical artistry and spiritual journey of the English global icon.

The resulting film features narration in Bowie’s own voice as the story presents how he crafted his multidisciplinary artistry and newly remastered music. An immersive, mysterious, life-affirming and risk-taking cinematic experience that illuminates Bowie’s life and work.
