Nick Cave’s “20,000 Days on Earth” Coming

If you’re a ginormous Nick Cave fan, such as myself, you may rejoice at the news that his film “20,000 Days on Earth” has been given a UK release date.

September 19th will see the film released via Picturehouse Entertainment.

Directed by visual artists Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, who have previously created visual works and documentaries for Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds in the past the film charts a fictitious 24 hours in the life of Cave. The film sees His Caveness at his most frank about the creative process and his inspirations interspersed with discussions with Ray Winstone and Kyle Minogue as he chauffeurs them around Brighton. Any project involving Nick Cave is always a cause for celebration, whether it be his music, poems, books or film work. To see him take on an autobiographical role, no matter how stylized is an exciting prospect. Add to the fact that Cave and frequent musical and general amazing person Warren Ellis are providing the music means that there will be another album to add to our collections. Hooray.

The film will receive its UK Premiere as part of Film4’s Summer Screen at Somerset House on August 13 for any lucky folk to have gotten tickets. September 17th will see a UK wide satellite broadcast previewing the film followed by a Q&A with Cave himself plus guests. Word from its screenings at Sundance and the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year was hugely positive. September 19th can’t come soon enough.
