DAVID BOWIE: RARE AND UNSEEN DVD

David Bowie - Rare And Unseen DVD As first mentioned on here in February, I've now got a little more information about the forthcoming DAVID BOWIE - Rare And Unseen DVD from Wienerworld Ltd scheduled for release next month.

Next month sees the release of a brand new DVD entitled 'Rare and Unseen: David Bowie'. The fifth title of this exclusive and all new DVD collection for fans, we take an inside look at the British actor, producer and musician for five decades: David Bowie.

Most famous for his alter-ego, the ostentatious, androgynous 'Ziggy Stardust' during the glam-rock era of the early 1970s, Bowie has continually reinvented his music and image and is regarded as an influential innovator, particularly in rock music and is regarded as one of the most multi-talented musicians in the world.

Told through missing-believed-wiped archive interviews and rare and unseen footage, this insightful DVD is a worthy addition to any Bowie collection. Items genuinely unseen and never before appeared on DVD including film from the ITN archive. Includes lost and now restored TV interviews from the past and rare film of the singer talking about his career. A must for the die-hard fan!

FLASHBACKS OF A FOOL
12th May 2010

"How can you choose between DAVID BOWIE and BRYAN FERRY?" is the wonderful line from the movie 'Flashbacks of a Fool'.

Daniel Craig delivers a startling performance as Joe Scot, a washed-up Hollywood star adrift in a haze of sex, drugs and squandered fame. But when he receives news of the sudden death of his childhood best friend, Joe flashes back to his younger self (played by Harry Eden of Oliver Twist) in his small English seaside village and the summer of innocence and tragedy that would change his life forever. Olivia Williams (The Sixth Sense), Claire Forlani ('CSI: NY'), Mark Strong (Sherlock Holmes, Robin Hood, Kick-Ass) and Grammy® Award Winner Eve co-star in this powerful drama about love, loss and one man's journey to redemption.

Flashbacks of a Fool features a spectacular soundtrack that includes songs by David Bowie, Scott Walker and Roxy Music. With stunning locations caught on vivid high-definition, Flashbacks of a Fool is a thoughtful and introspective addition to any film lover's library. The Blu-ray release from Anchor Bay Entertainment is being offered at a special SRP of $17.98 and will be available on May 25th.

Watch this space in the next few days for a giveaway contest to win yourself a copy of this Blu-ray release.




You can also pre-order Flashbacks Of A Fool [Blu-ray] NOW on the Region 1 format and receive an 11% discount.

INSIDE - THE SOUND OF THE DIVIDED BERLIN
1st May 2010

Inside - The Sound of The Divided Berlin Tuesday 8th June will see the debut of a new Italian show dedicated to the legendary Berlin Trilogy.

'Inside - The Sound of the Divided Berlin', produced by Ondesferiche, features a selection of tracks from DAVID BOWIE's masterpieces 'Low', "Heroes" and 'Lodger', all performed live, accompanied by action art and projections that aim to take the audience in the late 70's Berlin, "a city cut off from the world" as Bowie said.

The setlist features some of the most beautiful and haunting instrumental tracks ever, like 'Subterraneans', 'Neuköln' and 'Weeping Wall', and rock gems like 'Joe The Lion', 'Repetition' and the inevitable "Heroes".

The show debuts Tuesday 8th June in Asti, Italy, at the Palazzo Alfieri, as part of 'Passepartout', one of the main literature festivals in Italy, promoted by the Asti Library.

Since 2004, the festival has a different theme every year, around which shows, concerts, meetings and laboratories are built. This year's theme is the fall of the Berlin Wall, and this sounded like the right occasion to create a music event about the Berlin Trilogy.

Live Band: Alexander Macinante, Matteo Curallo, Manuel Daniele, Edoardo Accornero. Projections and 'Sand Art': Licio Esposito. Show starts at 10 p.m., free admittance.

More details and information will appear shortly on passepartoutfestival.it

From Alexander Macinante.
