The 20,000th day in the life of Nick Cave – from the sound of his alarm clock in the morning to a nocturnal stroll along the beach after a gig.

In their cinematic debut, British filmmaking duo Jane Pollard and Iain Forsyth capture the life story of the renowned Australian musician, Nick Cave, in one fictional day. The narrative delves into Cave’s worldview and the philosophy that he applies to his songwriting. Dramatised scenes depict a conversation with a therapist about his childhood. Fellow musicians like Blixa Bargeld and Kylie Minogue reminisce with Cave about their collaborations. The alternation of dramatised and documentary footage blurs the boundaries between fiction and reality, private and public. Rather than a classic documentary, 20,000 Days on Earth is a poetic portrait of a restless creativity.

»None of us really liked the traditional form of music documentary. The idea that if you see Bono washing the dishes and taking the kids to school, that somehow there’s a ‘truth’ you’re learning about the artist. What we all felt was that if a rock star is any good, then they become the thing they’ve created.«
-Iain Forsyth

The film—referred to by its director as a “comedy with no clowns, a tragedy without the antagonists”—is a wonderfully unpredictable family-themed tragicomedy about the conflicts that inevitably arise between the haves and the have-nots. A recipient of the Golden Palm at the most recent Cannes festival and a critics’ favourite of the year.
