20,000 DAYS ON EARTH
2014, Drafthouse Films, 97 min, UK, Dir: Iain Forsyth, Jane Pollard
Fusing cinematic drama with reality by weaving a fictitious 24-hour journey through the life of musician and international cultural icon Nick Cave, 20,000 DAYS ON EARTH is an intimate portrayal of the artistic process that speaks volumes to music fans, the art community and movie lovers alike. The debut directorial feature film of visual artists Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, the film, which opens theatrically on September 17, 2014 is set to an original score by Nick Cave and fellow Bad Seeds band mate Warren Ellis.

With startlingly frank insights and an intimate portrayal of the artistic process, the genre-defying film examines what makes us who we are, and celebrates the transformative power of the creative spirit. The film made its World Premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, where it was awarded both "Best Directing" and "Best Editing" Awards in the World Cinema Documentary category.

Andrew O'Hehir of Salon.com calls it "gorgeous and haunting, an unclassifiable and frequently spectacular documentary." Rob Nelson of Variety says "simply astounding, razor sharp, dynamic" while Michael Dunaway of Paste Magazine proclaims, "just spending an hour and a half or so inside the mind of Nick Cave would be fascinating enough. But the themes of time and lifetime, and the 20,000-day take on it, make this one a must-see."
