Moonage Daydream, Variety reports, is a "historical film" featuring a variety of previously unseen footage.

The film is directed by Brett Morgen, who had "unfiltered access to Bowie’s personal archives and … unearthed hundreds of hours of never-before seen 35mm and 16mm footage, and was able to assemble the performances from these original camera masters. Accordingly, all of the performances presented in the film will appear for the first time."

The piece also notes that Moonage Daydream has been in the works for five years, and is described as a "feature-length experiential cinematic odyssey that explores Bowie’s creative, musical and spiritual journey. Told through sublime, kaleidoscopic, never-before-seen footage, performances, and music, the film is guided by Bowie’s narration."

As well as directing the film, Morgen wrote, produced and edited the film after being given access to Bowie's archives by his estate in 2017.

Moonage Daydream will premiere at Cannes Film Festival next month, and is expected to arrive on HBO/HBO Max in spring next year.
