"The broadcast was a glowing success and the audience voted with thunderous applause. It may have been my first “event cinema” experience but it will not be the last." - Screen Daily
The Victoria and Albert Museum presents David Bowie is happening now, a nationwide cinema event screened live from its smash-hit exhibition David Bowie is.
This will be a behind-the-scenes tour of the exhibition in the company of the curators and influential creatives who have collaborated with or been inspired by David Bowie.
The V&A was given unprecedented access to the David Bowie Archive to curate this first retrospective of Bowie's extraordinary career. It displays 300 objects that have been brought together for the very first time, including original costumes, Bowie’s own instruments, sketches, handwritten lyrics and design notes.
The film will include exclusive footage never seen outside the exhibition, including footage of the Diamond Dogs tour, rehearsals for Station to Station, and a photo shoot with Herb Ritts, plus rare BBC radio archive interviews with Bowie.
Contributors will include avant-garde Japanese designer Kansai Yamamoto, who designed Bowie's Ziggy Stardust/Aladdin Sane costumes, and Terry O’Neill, the renowned celebrity photographer who is perhaps best known for his striking images of Bowie for the Diamond Dogs tour.
See all additional screenings here if the live show has sold out at your local cinema.
