20000daysonearth-120,000 Days On Earth, the innovative drama-documentary directed by Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard and featuring Nick Cave will be shown this week at the opening of the Sydney film Festival. The film premiered at Sundance 2014 where it was awarded the directing and editing awards, and will continue to screen at film festivals worldwide in the coming months. It showed at Russia’s Beat Film Festival last week. Drama and reality combine in a fictitious 24 hours in the life of musician and international cultural icon Nick Cave. With startlingly frank insights and an intimate portrayal of the artistic process, the film examines what makes us who we are, and celebrates the transformative power of the creative spirit. Visual artists Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard met while studying Goldsmiths College in London in the mid-nineties. They have worked together ever since. 20,000 Days on Earth is their first feature film.
They pioneered the use of re-enactment in contemporary art and became known for their recreations of highly-charged cultural moments, such as their critically acclaimed A Rock ‘N’ Roll Suicide, a painstakingly faithful live re-creation of David Bowie’s final performance as Ziggy Stardust exactly 25 years later.Music plays a significant role in their work, which includes many notable collaborations, such as a sound installation with Scott Walker at Sydney Opera House, experiments with subliminal sound with Jason Pierce (Spiritualized) and a video art work featuring the first ever on-screen appearance of rapper Plan B aka Ben Drew (Harry Brown, Ill Manors, The Sweeney). 20,000 Days On Earth shows at Dark MOFO, Tasmania June 14 and 21
