Bowiefest

September 1, 2012

O primeiro festival a homenagear a carreira de David Bowie como ator teve início ontem no Instituto de Arte Contemporânea de Londres e trará, até amanhã, filmes que foram quase tão importantes quanto a música na criação de sua imagem.

O Bowiefest acontece no ano que o músico comemora 65 e o álbum The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars 40, adiantando-se à exposição de peças de seu guarda-roupas que acontecerá no ano que vem no museu Victoria and Albert.

Para os fãs que não estarão em Londres para os eventos, veja alguns dos filmes que estão à mostra no festival, e comemore assistindo de onde estiver. Afinal, ele merece os créditos.

The first festival to pay tribute to David Bowie’s career as an actor started yesterday at the ICA London and will, until tomorrow, show films that were almost as important as his music on building up his image.

Bowiefest happens at the year of Bowie’s 65th birthday and the 40th anniversary of the album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, and ahead of next year’s exhibition of his costumes at the Victoria and Albert museum.

For fans that won’t be in London for the events, check out some of the movies on show at the festival and celebrate by watching them from wherever you are. After all, he deserves all the credits.
