‘20,000 Days On Earth’ Trailer: Nick Cave Tells The Whole Truth, Or Something Like The Truth

20000 days on earth

After months of awards and praise on the festival circuit, the documentary inspired by Nick Cave finally began screening in select theaters earlier this summer. Yesterday, the first trailer found its way online.

20,000 Days On Earth is not a typical rock and roll documentary. Instead of charting the life or career of Cave, the film chooses to focus on one semi-fictional day in the life of a musician who has spent his life traveling the world. Directors Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard have devised a number of improvisational situations for Cave. Specifically, “writing in his office, having lunch with his main songwriting collaborator Warren Ellis, and visiting the Nick Cave Archive.” It’s an interesting and engaging approach to sharing a unique look at one of rock’s most intriguing figures, and you can view the first two-minute trailer at the end of this post.

As I mentioned above, advanced screenings of 20,000 Days On Earth began taking place in June. There are still a few more dates left for the promotion run, however, and they are as follows:

07/20 – Austin, TX @ Alamo Drafthouse Ritz
07/21 – Austin, TX @ Alamo Drafthouse Ritz
07/24 – New Orleans, LA @ Zeitgeist Theater
07/27 – Philadelphia, PA @ Trocadero Theater
08/01 – Montreal, QC @ Phi Centre #
08/04 – New York, NY @ Florence Gould Hall Theater #

# = w/ includes conversation and rare solo performance from Nick Cave

20,000 Days On Earth is expected to receive a full theatrical release this September.
