Meet David before Bowie. One of the greatest icons in music history; But who was the young man behind the many faces? In 1971, a 24 year old David Bowie embarks on his first road trip to America with Mercury Records publicist Ron Oberman, only to be met with a world not yet ready for him. STARDUST offers a glimpse behind the curtain of the moments that inspired the creation of Bowie’s first and most memorable alter ego Ziggy Stardust, capturing the turning point that cemented his career as one of the world’s greatest cultural icons.
The highly anticipated production has generated heated debate amongst Bowie fans in the UK. The Times called the film “a remarkably confident, smart and resilient film with the sense of soul that its fascinating subject deserves, 4 stars”. Johnny Flynn has also recently been awarded the Best Actor Award at the 2020 Raindance Film Festival for his impressive performance as Bowie.
