TRAILER: New David Bowie Documentary

ROLLING STONE: The film, Finding Fame, directed by Francis Whately (who previously worked on David Bowie: Five Years), will premiere Friday at 9 p.m. ET and PT. It focuses on the period in Bowie’s life from the late Sixties through the emergence of his Ziggy Stardust character. In the middle of that period was the release of his breakthrough single, “Space Oddity,” in 1969. In addition to archival interviews with Bowie, the film also features commentary from the singer’s collaborators in the early days. Some of these people include members of Bowie’s early backing group, the Lower Third, his school chum and collaborator Geoffrey MacCormack, and Dana Gillespie, for whom Bowie had originally written the Hunky Dory track “Andy Warhol,” among others.
