This red carpet gala preview of 20,000 DAYS ON EARTH from London’s Barbican Hall will be followed by a unique 60-minute live experience that includes a live performance with Nick Cave, Warren Ellis and Barry Adamson and a Q&A with the creative team behind the film including directors Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard and special guests.
20,000 DAYS ON EARTH is a bold look at one of music’s most mysterious and charismatic figures: Nick Cave.
But although it contains electrifying scenes of performance, both in the studio and on tour, this is no concert film. Instead it presents Cave’s exploration of his own life and creative processes, with the same stark frankness and wry humour that is found in many of his works.
He shares humorous tales of times past with friends and collaborators, during segments that are presented in an almost dreamlike form; we get a glimpse inside his home studio, and even see him open up to psychoanalysis.
Defying traditional rockumentary aesthetics, directors Forsyth and Pollard push the genre to unexplored territory, offering a vision of the artist that is unconventional yet undeniably intimate.
