Drafthouse Films Acquires Sundance Award-Winning Nick Cave Doc '20,000 Days on Earth'

Drafthouse Films has acquired North American rights to Ian Forsyth and Jane Pollard’s Nick Cave documentary “20,000 Days on Earth.” The film made its world premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival where it won Best Directing and Best Editing in the World Cinema Documentary category. The company plans to release it this year.

The film tracks Cave’s creative process during the early stages of making his 2013 album “Push the Sky Away.”

“Partnering with Drafthouse Films to release our first film in North America is a huge thrill for us. They release the kind of films we want to watch! Tim League’s passion for film is infectious and together with his team we know their vision will ensure ‘20,000 Days on Earth’ reaches the widest possible audience” said Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard.

“I am among many who consider Nick Cave the unofficial poet laureate of the modern age,” says Drafthouse Films founder Tim League. “While his music fans are already eagerly anticipating this release, I am personally excited to share this riveting portrait of a modern creative genius with a much wider audience.”
