Since the late 1970s, Nick Cave’s bands The Birthday Party, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and Grinderman have set the standard for literate post-punk virtuosity. Now comes Nick Cave’s unique film project “20,000 Days on Earth” starting Friday at the Cable Car Cinema. This is no conventional profile or talking-head hagiography and comes recommended by Stephen Holden of The New York Times,
The film, a fusion of documentary and drama directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, is a fictional re-creation of the 20,000th day of Mr. Cave’s life, when he started recording his 2013 album, “Push the Sky Away.” It is as intimate and honest a portrait of a rock artist’s creative roots as any film has attempted.
Running time: 95 minutes.
Starts 2pm/6pm/10pm, Friday, October 10, Cable Car Cinema, 204 South Main Street
