Abstract:

Bowie: Origins of a Starman tells the full story of the English man who redefined and revolutionized the music of generations. Musician, actor, record producer, and icon known for his distinct voice and persona first charted at number five in the UK with the hit song "Space Oddity." In 1972, Bowie reinvented himself to establish presence in the glam rock scene via his flamboyant, decadent, androgynous alter-ego Ziggy Stardust. Packed with personal interviews, live performances, and never-before seen off-stage footage, this documentary film follows Bowie and his career through image, sound, and anecdote. Revealing how even through all his images, characters, and identities there is only one David Bowie. Known for such breakthrough hits as "Fame," "Ashes to Ashes," and "Under Pressure" (a 1981 collaboration with the rock legends Queen), this living legend's powerful presence, persona, and influence can still be felt today. Don't miss this exciting program!
