Musician Nick Cave is the subject of ‘20,000 Days on Earth,’ a fictional documentary which explores the rock star’s mystique as well as following his creative process as he works on his latest album ‘Push the Sky Away’.

The film follows Cave over the course of a single day, or as he puts it himself, his ‘20,000th day on earth.’ Narrated by Cave himself in typical brooding manner, we follow the singer as he talks frankly about his past with a therapist and drives from one location to another having philosophical conversations with people he has worked with including actor Ray Winstone and singer Kylie Minogue. In between these episodes we witness Cave’s artistic process unfold as he writes and rehearses new songs with his band.

Part documentary, part fictional drama, ‘20,000 Days on Earth’ examines the creative spirit of one of the most enigmatic figures in the music world today.

‘20,000 Days on Earth’ will be screened at The Source Arts Centre in Thurles on Wednesday, April 29th at 8pm.

Tickets are priced at €9 (€7 concession and €5 for Film Club members).
