This fictitious 24 hours in the life of musician and international cultural icon Nick Cave by artists Iain Forsythe and Jane Pollard combines drama and reality. Featuring contributions by Cave's family and collaborators like Warren Ellis, Blixa Bargeld and Kylie Minogue, the film is both the ultimate rock star performance and a frank and intimate look behind the facade. Sundance Winner for Best Documentary. “Incredible. It's thrilling to behold.” (Time Out) Nick Cave's 20,000th day on earth - a line in Cave's songwriting notebook calculating how many days he'd been alive inspired the film's title - begins with his awakening in bed, progressing through a therapy session, a recording session, staged family time with the kids, a live concert and scattered personal encounters.
