FEATURING NICK CAVE
20,000 DAYS ON EARTH weaves drama and reality in a fictionalized 24 hours in the life of internationally acclaimed musician, author and screenwriter Nick Cave.
Cave’s story is both extraordinary and strikingly universal. It takes us deep into the heart of how myth, memory, love and loss, shape each and every one of our lives, every single day.
The film explores the creative process, encounters collaborators from Cave’s past and bears witness to startlingly frank insights from this icon of modern culture. It reveals what makes us who we are and what influences who we want to become – ultimately, it is a love letter to the transformative power of the human spirit.

A FILM BY LONNY PRICE
One of the truly legendary musicals in the history of Broadway, MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG opened to enormous fanfare in 1981, and closed after sixteen performances. For the first time, BEST WORST THING THAT EVER COULD HAVE HAPPENED draws back the curtain on the extraordinary drama of the show's creation - and tells the stories of the hopeful young performers whose lives were transformed by it. Directed by Lonny Price, a member of the original cast, the film is a bittersweet meditation on the choices we all make, and the often unexpected consequences of those choices -- through success and failure. Featuring exclusive appearances by Stephen Sondheim, Hal Prince, Jason Alexander, Mandy Patinkin, Adam Guettel, Frank Rich and the original Broadway cast of MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG.
