„This is documentary storytelling at it’s most visionary and mindblowing“

Nick Cave: 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 and artists Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard fuse drama and documentary, weaving a staged day in Cave's life with never-before-seen verité observation of his creative cycle. The film was inspired by a calculation Nick Cave had made in his songwriting notebook working out his time on earth. With startlingly frank insights and an intimate portrayal of the artistic process, the film examines what makes us who we are, and celebrates the transformative power of the creative spirit.

Nick Cave: 20,000 Days on Earth premiered at Sundance Festival in 2014, winning two awards – both the Editing and Directing Awards in World Cinema Documentary. The jury describing the film as “being arguably the most exciting film in competition… This is documentary storytelling at it’s most visionary and mindblowing”.
