First Trailer for Nick Cave’s 20,000 DAYS ON EARTH Doc


Madman Films has released the first official trailer for Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard‘s 20,000 Days on Earth, about apocalyptic rock poet Nick Cave and it looks really good.

This impressionistic take on the Cave’s character uses elements of documentary and drama to bring us a day in the life of the only mature musician I know who actually gets better and better rather than worse and worse.

A doc portraying The Bad Seeds frontman and profiling Australian poet Nick Cave made its debut at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and won directing and editing awards for its originality.

20,000 Days on Earth examines what makes us who we are, and celebrates the transformative power of the creative spirit with startlingly frank insights and an intimate depiction of the artistic process.

Check out the hyperbolic trailer below, it sells the film nicely.

The film features appearances from Kylie Minogue, Ray Winstone and Cave’s bandmate Warren Ellis.

It was picked up by Drafthouse Films for release later this fall.
