“This day is both more real and less real, more true and less true, more interesting and less interesting than my actual day, depending on how you look at it” – Nick Cave
20,000 Days on Earth, the highly anticipated music documentary profiling international rock icon Nick Cave, makes its way over to NYC this Wednesday Sept 17th! Set in a fictitious 24 hours in the life of Cave, the film “is an intimate portrait of the artistic process, celebrating the transformative power of the creative spirit.” Accompanied by two opening weekend Q&A sessions with directors Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard, 20,000 Days functions as a unique mixture of documentary & cinematic fiction and transforms the genre of film into something deeper.
“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.”
