About the film:

World Premiere at the 2021 Berlin Film Festival. Like all musicians in 2021, Nick Cave was unable to connect with his audience in person. He uses this concert film to break the vocal and instrumental silence, talk about himself, perform songs, and illuminate the cosmology and themes of his music.

“remarkably intimate and incredibly moving…revealed new depths to one of the best songwriters of his generation…an emotional, powerful experience”

—Brian Tallerico for RogerEbert

Shot on location in London and Brighton, Andrew Dominik’s new feature documentary captures Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ exceptional creative relationship as they bring to life the songs from their last two studio albums, Ghosteen (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds) and Carnage (Nick Cave and Warren Ellis).
