London arts centre to screen Nick Cave semi biopic and beam it to 150 cinemas, followed by live session from Cave


Two days before the general release of 20,000 Days on Earth – a new film about and staring Nick Cave – London’s Barbican Centre will present a special red-carpet gala event on September 17th, with a preview of the movie that will also be beamed into 150 cinemas across the UK. The screening will be followed by a 60-minute live performance from Cave and long-time collaborators Warren Ellis and Barry Adamson, and a Q&A with the creative team behind the film including directors Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard and special guests.

Billed as a blurring of lines between documentary and drama – a production from Picturehouse Entertainment: those responsible for The ImposterThe Stone Roses: Made of StoneA Field in England and The Pervert’s Guide to Ideology – 20,000 Days on Earth portrays a cinematically staged day in Cave’s life that sees him take a drive through the streets of his adopted hometown of Brighton, England, while delving into the musician’s creative process. 

Tickets for the event go on sale at 10am tomorrow (11 July 2014), and are available here. They are priced between £40 and £60.
