A unique documentary using archival footage and new interpretations to explore the legacy of the music and lyrics of glam rock pioneer Marc Bolan, who died aged 29 in 1977.
Using archival performances, interviews with Bolan, and filmed interpretations by artists such as Nick Cave, John Cameron Mitchell, Joan Jett, Macy Gray, U2, Lucinda Williams, Father John Misty, & others, AngelHeaded Hipster creates an exuberant and thoughtful celebration of a true original; glam rock pioneer, gender-bending free spirit and explorer of punk and soul music.
Intertwined with interviews from the likes of his close friend David Bowie, Ringo Starr, Elton John and his partner, musician Gloria Jones, and laced with cinema verité footage captured directly from the studio with legendary Avant-Garde Record Producer Hal Willner, this film aims to create a new kind of musical retrospective.
