The work of Marc Bolan will be examined in Angelheaded Hipster, and the trailer for the documentary has landed.

Last month, the trailer landed for T-Rex inspired British film Bolan’s Shoes.

Now, new documentary Angelheaded Hipster takes a deep dive into Marc Bolan, his life, lyrics and more. The synopsis reads as follows:

AngelHeaded Hipster is the first documentary to explore the creation and interpretation of the Music and Lyrics of Marc Bolan who died at the age of 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, and others, this film creates an exuberant and thoughtful celebration of a true original; Glam Rock pioneer, gender-bending free spirit and explorer of punk and soul music with his last partner musician Gloria Jones, who is interviewed extensively from Sierra Leone. Illuminated with interviews by his great friend David Bowie, Ringo Starr, Elton John and many more, this film creates a new kind of music lookback intertwined with cinema verité footage captured directly from the studio with legendary Avant-Garde Record Producer Hal Willner who tragically died of COVID in 2020 after completing what would be his final album.

Ethan Silverman makes his feature directorial debut with the film.

Angelheaded Hipster will be released first with an accompanying Q&A at select cinemas on the 14th September, then a full release on the 22nd September.
