SPECIAL EVENT: DISCOVER TUESDAYS: David Bowie: Sound & Vision

*Please note! Start times may vary – check your local Picturehouse for correct information!
Our David Bowie anniversary programme will travel across London and the UK to multiple Picturehouse Cinemas as part of Discover Tuesdays. In place of Cracked Actor (screening at Picturehouse Central only), we will screen two further Bowie shorts delving further into his Eighties persona and his approaches in the new millennium.
THE IMAGE Michael Armstrong 14 min 1967
At 20 years old, Bowie was still two years away from Space Oddity when he acted in this silent mime-themed art short film, screened in London sex cinemas with an X rating.
JAZZIN’ FOR BLUE JEAN Julien Temple 20 min 1984
With an original storyline by Bowie, this extended music video for his 1984 album Tonight (featuring two tracks from this release), won a Grammy, and led to Bowie working with director Temple on Absolute Beginners the following year.
LET’S DANCE: BOWIE DOWN UNDER Rubika Shah 11 min 2015
The fascinating story behind one of the most celebrated music videos ever made, Bowie’s 1983 single Let’s Dance, shot in the Australian outback.
REALITYSteve Lippman 29 min 2003
UK premiere of a conceptual film commissioned for Bowie’s 2003 album Reality, an abstract and darkly comic portrait of Bowie in which questions and answers chase themselves, and meaning is absurd. N.B. Steve has kindly requested the film hire fee to be given to the GoFundMe campaign for Therese DePrez as the recipient, who was the production designer on the Reality film and tour for Bowie, who is now battling cancer and its effects.
50p from every ticket sold for LSFF DAVID BOWIE: SOUND AND VISION programmes nationwide will be donated to Save The Children.
