DokStation’s Music Documentary Film Festival second edition will take place between 14th and 17th of September 2017. The festival’s screenings, concerts, events and workshops will occur in many of the Capital’s districts.
The 2017’s edition is dedicated to the British musician David Bowie, who left us on the 10th of January 2016. The special program will include the following titles: the classical Ziggy Stardust And the Spiders from Mars (1973) by D.A. Pennebaker, the last concert film on the 3rd of July 1973, David Bowie: Five Years (2013) from Francis Whately, documentary that covers five of the most important years in Bowie’s carrier, David Bowie: The Man Who Stole The World (2016) by Elena Carmen and Billy Simpson, the first homage-documentary after Bowie’s death, and David Bowie: The Last Five Years (2017) by Francis Whately, a film about the last two albums “The Next Day” and “Blackstar” and the Broadway musical “Lazarus”.
DokStation is dedicated to both the film and music loving audience and the communities in Bucharest’s neighbourhoods. During its three days, DokStation’s programme will consist of recent documentaries premiering in Romania which uncover stories about music – stories from the studio, the stage or behind the scenes, stories about different kinds of music, words and visions, stories of musicians and their failures and triumphs.
