POPOLI HIGHLIGHTS: DAVID BOWIE

DAVID BOWIE, MAN WITH A HUNDRED FACES or THE PHANTOM OF HÉROUVILLE
by Christophe Conte, Gaëtan Chataigner
(France, 2015, 70’)
A rich, multi-layered portrait of one of the most versatile, genial personalities of pop music, this film goes back on the fundamental steps in the career of David Bowie. The musical research carried out by the artist goes hand in hand with the creation – anything but extemporaneous – of so many characters that made their mark on his concert stages, from Ziggy Stardust to The Thin White Duke. A few emergent French artists (such as Jeanne Added, Mathieu Saïlaly and Lou Doillon) contribute with beautiful covers of songs that will linger in collective memory for a very long time.
