20,000 Days on Earth
Production: GBR 2014
For years, Nick Cave has been one of the most fascinating and enigmatic figures of music, literature, and film. His unique film portrait, 20,000 Days on Earth, adds even more to the mystery and makes us answer the question: how many days of our lives have we really lived? What have we done with the time given to us? Day number 20,000 in the life of Nick Cave – from the early morning ringing of the alarm clock to the late night stroll along the beach after a show – transforms into an unusual and fascinating portrait of the artist. In their cinematic début, Jane Pollard and Iain Forsyth combine fiction and truth, and public matters with the personal, in order to tell the story of his life.
