Watch: First Full Trailer for Nick Cave's '20,000 Days on Earth' Doc
"I wake, I write, I eat, I watch TV." Madman Films has unveiled the first official trailer for the remarkable new documentary 20,000 Days on Earth, profiling Australian singer/songwriter/musician/poet Nick Cave. This doc premiered at Sundance in January and received quite a bit of acclaim for its originality (I've never seen anything like it) and was picked up by Drafthouse Films for release later this fall. An early trailer has arrived online and it gives us all a taste of just how unique, and exciting, and bold, and fascinating this doc (and Nick Cave himself) is. I'm actually really impressed by this trailer, it sells the film nicely, and makes it look like the kind of must-see music doc that will easily attract both fans and non-fans alike. Enjoy.
Here's the first Aussie trailer for Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard's doc 20,000 Days on Earth, via YouTube:
Drama and reality combine in a fictitious 24 hours in the life of musician and international cultural icon Nick Cave. With startlingly frank insights and an intimate portrayal of the artistic process, the film examines what makes us who we are, and celebrates the transformative power of the creative spirit. The documentary titled 20,000 Days on Earth, from co-directors Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard, features an inside look at the mind and life of Australian musician Nick Cave. Not only does it profile a couple of his most recent recording sessions and feature lengthy discussions with the "unofficial poet laureate of the modern age", but there are also interviews inside a car with people like Ray Winstone. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Drafthouse Films will open 20,000 Days on Earth in select theaters this fall.
