Considered one of the greatest artists of our time, David Bowie left a significant mark on culture for over fifty years. Moonage Daydream is the first film to be supported by the David Bowie Estate, which has given Morgen unprecedented access to their collection. Told through sublime, kaleidoscopic images, personal archival footage, exceptional performances, and anchored by David Bowie’s own music and words, Moonage Daydream invites the audience to immerse themselves in a unique “Bowie” world.
Morgen was born in 1968 and grew up in New York City. His award-winning work helped set the standard of nonfiction movie making in the early 21st century. Over the course of his hugely successful career, he covered subjects regarding athletes, punk rockers, all the way to his fellow movie makers. His films include the feature-length documentaries On the Ropes (1999), The Kid Stays In The Picture (2002) and Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck.
