New Documentary About Bowie to be Released on HBO

Documentarian Francis Whately has created a new documentary called “David Bowie: The Last Five Years” to shine a light on the last five years of Bowie’s life including the creation of his albums “The Next Day” and “Black Star” as well as his musical “Lazarus”. This documentary is a follow up to “David Bowie: Five Years” which explored Bowie’s most artistically prevalent years.

HBO has acquired the US television rights for the BBC Films documentary which will feature rare interviews with Bowie himself, archival footage, and audio from the Blackstar and The Next Day, not to mention Bowie’s artistic collaborators and friends.

Whately said, “Looking at Bowie’s extraordinary creativity during the last five years of his life has allowed me to reexamine his life’s work and move beyond the simplistic view that his career was simply predicated on change. HBO, whose global output the world admires, is a great channel to get this incredible documentary out to the US fans.”
