So many people have wondered about the end of David Bowie‘s life, and soon they’ll know a bit more thanks to a documentary set to be released in early 2017. Bowie, who died on January 10 from liver cancer, will be remembered in David Bowie: The Last Five Years. The documentary will feature new interviews and unseen footage from Bowie’s last two albums Blackstar and The Next Day, according to Factmag who first reported the news.
The documentary will be produced and directed by Francis Whately as a follow-up to 2013’s David Bowie: Five Years.
“I always hoped that I would make another film about Bowie as we were only able to scratch the surface in the first film, but I just didn’t expect it to be this soon,” Whateley told the publication. “However, looking at Bowie’s extraordinary creativity during the last five years of his life has allowed me to re-examine his life’s work and move beyond the simplistic view that his career was simply predicated on change – Bowie the chameleon.”
Adding, “Instead, I would like to show how the changes were often superficial, but the core themes in his work were entirely consistent – alienation, mortality, and fame.”
Fans can expect to catch a glimpse at rarely seen archives of Bowie’s interviews and performances as well as a never-heard-before acapella performance for Lazarus.
