From Planet Rock.
Directed by the Emmy Award-winning Gabriel Range, Stardust is described as an ‘origins story’ and follows a very brief snapshot in time in the early seventies when David Bowie was on the brink of launching his legendary short-lived Ziggy Stardust alter ego.
The film premiered this month at the San Diego International Film Festival and will hit select cinemas and Video On Demand on Wednesday 25th November 2020.
Clocking in at over two minutes, the Stardust trailer begins with the young David Bowie (Johnny Flynn) arriving in America, and follows his meeting with US publicist Ron Oberman before culminating with the creation of Ziggy Stardust.
“There is no authentic me. There’s just fear,” Flynn says in the clip. “I want to take my fantasies on stage with me.”
A plot synopsis for the film reads: “David Bowie is one of the most seminal legends in music history; but who was the man behind the many faces? In 1971, a 24-year-old fledgling David Bowie (Johnny Flynn) is sent to America to promote his newest record, The Man Who Sold the World. Leaving behind his pregnant wife Angie (Jena Malone), Bowie and his band embark on a makeshift coast-to-coast promotional tour with struggling Mercury Records publicist Rob Oberman (Marc Maron).”
Filming on Stardust began in Toronto, Canada and the US in July 2019 and finished just two months later.
The movie was originally due to get its official premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York in April 2020, but the event was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
