Before David Bowie became an international jet-set ski-bum megastar (and fixed his teeth) he was closely associated with the avant-garde Arts Lab-influenced side of experimental theatre. Heavily influenced by Anthony Newley and Lindsay Kemp, his persona was a sort of geek-pierrot, engaging in a bizarre multiple-death scenario in this 60s short. It's all a bit self-consciously pseudo-profound but it's an interesting oddity for Bowie fans, showing an early stage of the theatricality that would inform his most creative period (1972-78).
