20,000 Days on Earth

Director: Iain Forsyth, Jane Pollard Run Time: 97 min. Format: DCP Rating: NR Release Year: 2014

Starring: Kylie Minogue, Nick Cave, Ray Winstone, Susie Bick, Warren Ellis

In 20,000 DAYS ON EARTH, drama and reality combine in a fictitious 24 hours in the life of musician and international cultural icon Nick Cave.

20,000 Days On Earth takes us deep into the heart of how myth, memory, love and loss, shape our lives, every single day. A line in Cave’s songwriting notebook calculating how many days he’d been alive inspired the film’s title. The film delves into Nick’s artistic processes, unpicking the stuff that makes him tick. Fusing drama and documentary to weave a cinematic day-in-the-life with unique verité observations of his full creative cycle.
