Moonage Daydream‘s trailer opens on a pulsing multicolored cosmos that dissolves to reveal Bowie standing under a shower of confetti. It continues with a montage of Bowie’s concert performances and iconic interviews, each sporting an intensely eye-pleasing palette.

Moonage Daydream is the first documentary officially approved by Bowie’s estate. Because of this, Morgen was granted access to a treasure trove of footage for the film. This includes shots from the Isolar, Serious Moonlight, Diamond Dogs, Outside/Earthling and the Glass Spider tours.

Morgen is a well-established documentarian with work focusing on Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and renowned primatologist Jane Goodall.
