Tbilisi to show David Bowie documentary

A new documentary about David Bowie 'The Last Five Years' will be broadcast on his 70th birthday in Tbilisi.

Directed by Francis Whately, David Bowie: The Last Five Years tells the stories of his 2013 surprise album The Next Day, his 2015 musical Lazarus, and Blackstar, the singer’s twenty-fifth studio album released just two days before his death. 

"There was nothing predictable about David Bowie - everything was designed to intrigue, to challenge, to defy all expectations. But perhaps no period in David Bowie’s extraordinary career raised more fascination, more surprise, and more questions, than the last five years. This film is an intimate portrait of one of the defining artists of our time, told by the people who knew him best: his friends and artistic collaborators," BBC cited the statement as saying.

David Bowie (David Robert Jones) died on January 10 from liver cancer in his New York City apartment.
