20000 DAYS ON EARTH

Nick Cave is a musician, author, screenwriter and film composer, but he's also Nick Cave.  Legend and fact often overlap with respect to the details of his life and work, and that's just the way he likes it. This is why the upcoming docudrama "20,000 Days On Earth" is a suitable project for the australian auteur.

Directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, and featuring Ray Winstone, Kylie Minogue, Blixa Bargeld and Warren Ellis, the movie follows an often fictionalized Cave over the course of 24 hours, examining his creative process and persona. Here's the official synopsis: 20,000 Days On Earth is an inventive, lyrical ode to creativity and an intimate examination of the artistic process of musician and cultural icon Nick Cave. In their debut feature directors Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard fuse drama and documentary, weaving a staged day in Cave’s life with never-before-seen verité observation of his creative cycle. It features those who have affected his life, including wry tales from the road shared with his regular collaborator, the multi-instrumentalist Warren Ellis; actor and friend Ray Winstone; and Kylie Minogue, who shared a duet with Cave in the breakout hit "Where the Wild Roses Grow." These voices from the past revisit Cave in daydream-like scenes as he sits behind the wheel driving through his adopted hometown of Brighton, England.  

The results are intriguing. "Though the film steers clear of biography, it does allow for a few brief trips down memory lane in the form of a pair of sound-and-fury montages that bookend the film and a trip to the archive in Australia, which houses photos and artifacts from throughout Cave’s career," Cory Everett wrote in his review after the movie premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. 

"20,000 Days On Earth" opens on September 17th. Exclusive stills below.
