See Nick Cave Type in
20,000 Days on Earth Clip

February 12, 2014 | Marina Galperina

Drafthouse Films just acquired North American rights to the Nick Cave “drama-documentary” 20,000 Days on Earth dir. Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard, featuring Kylie Minogue, Warren Ellis and staged scenarios for revealing soliloques.

Here’s the first official clip. See a dramatically lit Nick Cave type in a theatrical manner while the narrator voice — who sort of sounds like a de-Aussie-fied Nick Cave — talks about Nick Cave’s writing process. It’s all very theatrical for a documentary, but I honestly believe this is how he looks. Also, if you read one of his novels, you will hear lightning and a crow with a bloody beak will fly through your window. Try it.
