Join us for a very special preview of 20,000 DAYS ON EARTH followed by a live performance, via satellite from the Barbican Centre, by Nick Cave, Warren Ellis and Barry Adamson, plus a Q&A with the film's directors and special guests.

20,000 DAYS ON EARTH is a bold look at one of music’s most mysterious and charismatic figures: Nick Cave. But although it contains electrifying scenes of performance, both in the studio and on tour, this is no concert film. Instead it presents Cave’s exploration of his own life and creative processes, with the same stark frankness and wry humour that is found in many of his works.

He shares humorous tales of times past with friends and collaborators, during segments that are presented in an almost dreamlike form; we get a glimpse inside his home studio, and even see him open up to psychoanalysis.

Defying traditional rockumentary aesthetics, directors Forsyth and Pollard push the genre to unexplored territory, offering a vision of the artist that is unconventional yet undeniably intimate.
