(Classic Rock) A short film that explores David Bowie's 1983 music video for his track "Let's Dance" premiered in New York City at the Tribeca Film Festival this week.

Let's Dance: Bowie Down Under goes behind the scenes of the promo, which was filmed in the town of Carinda, Australia. The shoot mixed scenes of dance with footage showing the plight of the Aboriginal people and was directed by David Mallet.

Mallet tells Rolling Stone: "It was very much David's idea and concept. It was his idea to shoot in Australia, which in those days was a bold thing to do for a music video. I don't think any of us had any idea how important it was to do and what the reaction would be."

Bowie says in the documentary: "It's a lot more straightforward than anything I've done in a long time. It's not so concerned with juxtaposing surreal images together. It's a very direct statement about integration of one culture with another." Read more here.
