Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars

Presented as part of our David Bowie; STARMAN series!

Documentarian D.A. Pennebaker focuses his lens on a 1973 concert by David Bowie, who performs under the moniker Ziggy Stardust with his glam-rock backing band, the Spiders From Mars. While some backstage footage of the theatrical singer-songwriter is featured, the majority of the film is devoted to the music played onstage, which includes hits, album cuts and covers of Rolling Stones and Velvet Underground songs. Bowie also shocks fans by announcing his intention to drop the Stardust persona.


"Viewers only familiar with this glam-rock period from recent movies such as Hedwig and the Angry Inch and The Velvet Goldmine will be intrigued to discover this historical moment in all its flamboyant glory." - Austin Chronicle

"Pennebaker's Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars captures Bowie at perhaps his purest, punkiest rock 'n' roll peak." - Toronto Star

"An excellent example of its genre, with Pennebaker capturing the excitement of what was a very special, emotion-charged occasion." - Los Angeles Times
