Nick Cave's 20,000 Days On Earth opens @ TIFF Bell Lightbox, Friday

Nick Cave and longtime pal Kylie Minogue blur the boundries between narrative and documentary film. 

The acclaimed film from UK visual artists Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard, 20,000 Days On Earth weaves drama and reality in a fictionalized 24 hours in the life of musician, author and actor Nick Cave.

Cave’s story is both extraordinary and strikingly universal. It takes us deep into the heart of how myth, memory, love and loss, shape each and every one of our lives, every single day.

The genre-defying film explores the creative process, encounters collaborators from Cave’s past and bears witness to startlingly frank insights from this icon of modern culture. It reveals what makes us who we are and what influences who we want to become – ultimately, it is a love letter to the transformative power of the human spirit. Watch the trailer below followed by a stage reunion of Cave and Kylie Minogue.

"During the making of 20,000 Days on Earth, we asked Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds to play an intimate club show at Koko in London, a beautiful old Victorian music hall. We wanted to do something special for the fans, so while we were filming the scenes with Nick and Kylie in Brighton he asked her if she'd like to come and sing their infamous duet.

Kylie jumped at the chance, and a few weeks later walked out on stage and performed Where The Wild Roses Grow live with Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds for the first time in 15 years. This moment was such a highlight for everyone who was there that we wanted to share it with everyone."
