Drafthouse Films Acquires Nick Cave Doc 20,000 DAYS ON EARTH
Drafthouse Films have purchased the North American rights for the documentary 20,000 Days On Earth, a film about a fictional day in the life of musician Nick Cave.
The film was the feature debut of visual artists Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard. It had its World Premiere at Sundance this year, where it won "Best Directing" and "Best Editing" Awards in the World Cinema Documentary category. It had its European Premiere at the Berlin Film Festival yesterday.
Drama and reality combine in a fictitious 24 hours in the life of musician and international cultural icon, Nick Cave. With startlingly frank insights and an intimate portrayal of the artistic process, the film examines what makes us who we are, and celebrates the transformative power of the creative spirit."I am among many who consider Nick Cave the unofficial poet laureate of the modern age," says Drafthouse Films founder Tim League. "While his music fans are already eagerly anticipating this release, I am personally excited to share this riveting portrait of a modern creative genius with a much wider audience."
Drafthouse Films is planning a theatrical release in 2014.
