Plot Summary:

Since the late 1970s, Cave's bands The Birthday Party, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and Grinderman have set the standard for literate post-punk virtuosity. "20,000 Days on Earth" is no conventional profile or talking-head hagiography. Filmmakers/visual artists Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard frame the movie through one imagined day in his life – blending fact and fiction, songwriting, encounters with collaborators (Kylie Minogue, Ray Winstone, former and current bandmates Blixa Bargeld and Warren Ellis), therapy sessions, rehearsals, and other stimuli that feed his creative process – all capped off by a smoldering live performance.
