David Bowie was elusive and, during the last decade of his life, made a point of avoiding almost any public appearance at music related events. What he was up to during the last five years of his life will be brought to light in a new documentary that HBO has just obtained the rights to. David Bowie: The Last Five Years is being directed and produced by David Whately, the man who directed a 2013 documentaty titled David Bowie: Five Years that delved into 5 different years of the singer's fabled career. HBO says Whately gained "unprecedented access to Bowie's closest friends and artistic collaborators" while making the film. The director/producer says, 'Looking at Bowie's extraordinary creativity during the last five years of his life has allowed me to re-examine his life's work and move beyond the simplistic view that his career was simply predicated on change.'
