David Bowie and Jerry Lee Lewis docs to premiere at Cannes

A new David Bowie documentary 'Moonage Daydream', directed by Brett Morgen (best known for the Kurt Cobain doc, Montage of Heck) and the first Bowie doc to have the approval of the late musician’s estate, is set to screen at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival. The film is described as both a concert documentary and an “experimental cinematic odyssey” that will track Bowie’s life and career, delving into his work as a musician, but also his multidisciplinary approach to his craft. Ethan Coen’s doc, 'Jerry Lee Lewis: Trouble in Mind', will also air at Cannes as a “special screening”. Baz Luhrmann will screen his new Elvis Presley biopic, Variety reports.
