Nick Cave’s “20,000 Days on Earth” unveils 1st trailer

PanARMENIAN.Net - Nick Cave has released the first trailer for his docudrama 20,000 Days on Earth, Digital Spy reported.

Kylie Minogue cameos in the teaser for the film, which blends the reality of the musician's life with elements of fiction.

Ray Winstone and musician Warren Ellis are among Cave's other friends and collaborators that appear in the film.

"Nick would have never gone for a straightforward rock-doc," co-director Iain Forsyth told the New York Times in a recent interview.

"We decided to go in a direction that combined reality with fantasy as seamlessly as possible - which, if you think about it, isn't too far from the transaction between a rock star and his fans. People want desperately to enter the world Nick creates in his songs.

"You can look around when the Bad Seeds are playing and see precisely which version of Nick - the junkie, the outlaw, the lover - each person in the crowd wants to be."

I See a Darkness creator Reinhard Kleist is working on a graphic novel biography of Cave with the musician's blessing.

20,000 Days on Earth will begin screening at select locations over the coming months.
