The final work of music legend David Bowie is to be turned into an Instagram mini-series. Blackstar, Bowie’s last album before his death earlier this year, is to be paid tribute to through a series of short films titled Unbound. Signed off by Bowie just months before his passing, the series is set to star Tavi Gevinson and Patricia Clarkson, and will premier this Thursday. Check out the trailer for the series below.

“UNBOUND: A InstaMiniSeries” In the Fall of 2015, David Bowie gave us unique pre-release access to the music from (pronounced ‘Blackstar’), his 28th studio album, allowing us to create our own visual interpretations of his songs, with no limits or preconditions on his part. Completed in December 2015, UNBOUND: InstaMiniSeries takes the audience on a journey of evocative images inspired by the moods suggested in the album’s music, lyrics and artwork. Each episode of the series is sure to capture the imaginations of all who experience it and will undoubtedly lead to endless speculation and discussion of meaning, metaphor and intention. We are honored to have had this opportunity and hope you’ll join our 16 episode series, premiering February 25th. New episode every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
