    Christiane F. is a 1981 German biographical drama film directed by Uli Edel that portrays the descent of Christiane Felscherinow, a bored 13-year-old growing up in mid-1970s West Berlin, struggling with addiction. Based on the 1978 non-fiction book Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo (We Children from Zoo Station), transcribed and edited from tape recordings by Kai Hermann and Horst Rieck, the film immediately acquired cult status and features David Bowie as both composer and as himself.

    Happy Friday John, Owen, and crew, I wanted to give a special shoutout to all the Seattle school teachers who are wrapping up a unique, most likely stressful, year of school today, especially my mother in law, Linda from Dearborn Elementary in Beacon Hill. For close to 30 years, Linda has helped inspire and create positive change in and out of the classroom! If you could please play the last song played in the movie, JoJo Rabbit, called Helden by a guy named David for Linda and every other teacher. We love you! Thanks, Dukes === "The song that inspired Phillip Glass’s 1996 “‘Heroes’” Symphony, that announced the arrival of Britain’s athletes at the London 2012 Games opening ceremony, that has been covered by many artists before and since Bowie’s death in 2016, has become the ultimate epitaph for the man who gave popular music so much drama and adventure, so propulsive is his song’s build and its swell, so passionate and strange are its lyrics."
