THE IMAGE Michael Armstrong 14 min 1967
At 20 years old, Bowie was still two years away from Space Oddity when he acted in this silent mime-themed art short film, screened in London sex cinemas with an X rating.

JAZZIN’ FOR BLUE JEAN Julien Temple 20 min 1984
With an original storyline by Bowie, this extended music video for his 1984 album Tonight (featuring two tracks from this release), won a Grammy, and led to Bowie working with director Temple on Absolute Beginners the following year.

LET’S DANCE: BOWIE DOWN UNDER Rubika Shah 11 min 2015.
The fascinating story behind one of the most celebrated music videos ever made, Bowie’s 1983 single Let’s Dance, shot in the Australian outback.

REALITY Steve Lippman 29 min 2003
UK premiere of a conceptual film commissioned for Bowie’s 2003 album Reality, an abstract and darkly comic portrait of Bowie in which questions and answers chase themselves, and meaning is absurd.
