The Sacred Triangle: Bowie, Iggy & Lou 1971-1973

Dir. Alec Lindsell | 2010 | 107 min

A fascinating look at how the careers of three icons-to-be intertwined in the early 1970s to help usher in a new era of rock 'n' roll.

By 1971 David Bowie was branded a one-hit-wonder, Lou Reed was considered washed up following a disastrous debut and Iggy Pop was seen as merely a drug crazed ex-Stooge. But a meeting of minds in that year's closing months was the catalyst for an extraordinary turnaround for these three musical geniuses, resulting in the most dramatic shift of musical style since the dawn of the rock age. This fascinating film investigates the era in which these brilliant personalities worked most closely together. Told by those who were there at the time  - including exclusive contributions from David's ex-wife Angie Bowie, Andy Warhol's Factory assistant Billy Name, and New York scenester/punk star Jayne (nee Wayne) County - and with rare, classic film footage and recently discovered archive material, The Sacred Triangle reveals a time of incredible creativity and a sublime chain of events that changed music forever.
