Enjoy this series at Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema from March 6 – April 3
As an artist who consistently blazed trails and shifted shapes, the late, great David Bowie made his mark far beyond the music realm. Just as each of his albums takes listeners on singular, worldly journeys, his films allow us to travel into Hensonian wonderlands, dangerous waters, and foreign planets.

In what would have been his 75th year on this plane, we’re exploring the Bowie cinematic universe with a selection of his classic movies, docs and works he inspired, featuring space oddities, not-so-scary monsters, and rowdy rebels. Get ready to float along in the most peculiar way.
