Brent Morgan’s David Bowie documentary, Moonage Daydream, is getting a director-approved special edition 4K UHD and Blu-ray release via The Criterion Collection. The new edition will be available September 26th featuring a 4K digital master, supervised by writer-director-editor-producer Brett Morgen, with Dolby Atmos and stereo soundtracks. The special editions follow the film’s original Blu-ray and DVD release and soundtrack album, both released last fall

The set will feature on 4K UHD disc of the film and a Blu-ray with special features, including audio commentary by Morgen; Q&A with Morgen, filmmaker Mark Romanek, and musician Mike Garson at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood; interview with erecording mixers David Giammarco and Paul Massey; and film trailer.

The set is completed with an essay by film critic Jonathan Romney and a collectible poster insert.

An ecstatic voyage through the creative and spiritual universe of David Bowie, Moonage Daydream is a fittingly unclassifiable tribute to the shape-shifting rock iconoclast and his singular sound and vision. Exploding the conventions of the music documentary, director Brett Morgen remixes dazzling, never-before-seen footage of the artist throughout his career, reveling in his otherworldly presence while revealing the restless philosophical inquiry that guided his myriad metamorphoses. Graced with soulful narration by Bowie, this immersive audiovisual head rush transmits the essence of a phenomenon that cannot be explained—only experienced.

Considered one of the greatest artists of our time, David Bowie has been moving culture for over 50 years. Moonage Daydream is the first film to be supported by the David Bowie Estate, which granted Morgen unprecedented access to their collection. The movie, including its title track, draws extensively on Bowie’s 1970 to 1977 song catalog, including “Changes,” “Starman,” “Ziggy Stardust,” “The Jean Genie,” “All The Young Dudes,” and others.

Moonage Daydream is written, directed, edited, and produced by Brett Morgen. Executive producers are Hartwig Masuch, Kathy Rivkin Daum, and Justus Haerder for BMG; Michael Rapino, Heather Parry, and Ryan Kroft for Live Nation Productions; Bill Zysblat, Tom Cyrana, Aisha Cohen, and Eileen D’Arcy for RZO; Billy Gerber, and Debra Eisenstadt. The feature is a Public Road Productions film.
