This summer, 20,000 Days on Earth, the Sundance-winning documentary inspired by Nick Cave, will screen in select theaters across North America. Below, you can watch a new, two-minute trailer for the film.
As the trailer suggests, 20,000 Days on Earth isn’t the prototypical rock documentary. For the day in question, directors Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard 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.” If this trailer is any indication, it will be a fascinating, heady, and revealing look into the enigmatic Australian crooner.
20,000 Days on Earth is expected to receive a full theatrical release this September.
