About the Film
20,000 Days On Earth is a bold and unique look at one of music’s most mysterious and charismatic figures, the iconic musician and writer Nick Cave. Directors Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard present a vision of an artist in a way that is unconventional yet undeniably intimate, while also exploring more universal themes of creativity and how we choose to spend our time on the Earth. The film presents Cave’s personal analysis of his own life and creative processes. He shares humorous tales of times past with bandmate and frequent collaborator Warren Ellis, and engages in enlightening discussion with those who have affected his life both professionally and personally, including former Bad Seed Blixa Bargeld, actor friend Ray Winstone, and perhaps most notably Kylie Minogue, with whom Cave collaborated on his breakout hit Where the Wild Roses Grow.
this looks a bit special. only into nick cave a little bit, but this ticks a lot of boxes!
Beautifully made and unexpectedly funny
Saw this at the premiere in London with a Q&A with the directors, Cave and Ray Winstone! - it's the funniest, most moving and inspirational film I've ever seen. Defy any who sees it not to come away thinking, as Cave says, that our days on earth are numbered and we have to make them count. What a life he's had - what a film this is.
fact?...fiction? or both? - it matter’s not! - this is a remarkable film featuring a remarakble and innovative human being.
