Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars
directed by D.A. Pennebaker starring David Bowie, Mick Ronson, Trevor Bolder, Mick Woodmansy, Angela Bowie
During the 1970s, British glam rocker David Bowie’s gender-bending style had a huge impact on popular culture. Widely known for his unique rock-and-roll characters and alter egos, Bowie put on a legendary live show. Director D.A. Pennebaker captures Bowie’s most famous character — Ziggy Stardust, the rock star from Mars — as he performs for the last time. At the time, many thought this 1973 London show would be Bowie’s swan song as well.
