Angelheaded hipster

AngelHeaded Hipster is the first documentary to explore the complex and revolutionary music and lyrics of Marc Bolan and T. Rex. Using archival performances, interviews with Bolan, Elton John and Ringo Starr, plus filmed musical interpretations by artists such as Nick Cave, John Cameron Mitchell, Joan Jett, Macy Gray, U2, Lucinda Williams, Father John Misty, and son Rolan Bolan among others; this documentary creates an exuberant and thoughtful examination of a true original: a glam rock pioneer, gender-bending free spirit and explorer of punk and soul music. We celebrate Bolan’s life from his teenage years digging through Carnaby Street dustbins with David Bowie, to his stellar music career and last relationship with Gloria Jones, all through a new, unique creative lens.

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.
