Wednesday 17th September at 7pm (doors 6pm)
20,000 DAYS ON EARTH is the award-winning feature film about one of music’s most mysterious and charismatic figures, the iconic Nick Cave. In their debut feature directors Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard fuse drama and documentary by weaving a cinematically staged day in Cave’s life with never-before-seen verité observation of his full creative cycle.
The film goes on general release on Friday 19th September and this exclusive preview screening will be followed by a live satellite event featuring Nick Cave performing plus special guests.
20,000 Days On Earth delves into Cave’s artistic processes, unpicking the stuff that makes him tick. We meet those who have affected his life, personally and professionally, including hilarious moments shared with his regular collaborator, the multi-instrumentalist and epic beard-wearer Warren Ellis; actor and friend Ray Winstone; and Kylie Minogue, whom Cave duetted with on his mainstream hit single Where The Wild Roses Grow.
“This elegant study looks less like a documentary than like a highly staged thriller, a piece of brooding provincial noir” Jonathan Romney, Film Comment
