Directed by pioneering rock film-maker D.A. Pennebaker, Ziggy Stardust & The Spiders from Mars remains a defining documentary and concert film, signalling the retirement of the Ziggy Stardust persona.

DA Pennebaker had only vaguely heard of David Bowie when he was commissioned by RCA Columbia to shoot a 30-minute film of the star live at Hammersmith Apollo. The direct cinema pioneer set about capturing vérité material backstage to mix with the three-camera concert footage. When Bowie stunned the audience – and his own band – by announcing live on stage it would be the last ever Ziggy show, all the ingredients fell into place for a truly remarkable concert film.
