Time & Tickets

In THIS MUCH I KNOW TO BE TRUE, Nick Cave and Warren Ellis perform the songs from their last two studio albums, GHOSTEEN (by Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds) and CARNAGE (by Cave and Ellis). The footage was shot in the spring of 2021, in London and Brighton, prior to a tour of the United Kingdom. Together with backing singers and string quartets, in addition to a contribution from longtime friend Marianne Faithfull, the musicians perform their beautiful songs in the most intimate way possible.

In a way this documentary is a sequel to ONE MORE TIME WITH FEELING, released in 2016. In that documentary, director Andrew Dominik follows the two musicians through a period of mourning and intense grief. THIS MUCH I KNOW TO BE TRUE is something completely different. It shows the two resilient musicians during a much more optimistic period in their lives.

Please take notice of the fact that this documentary contains flashes of light.

Andrew Dominik, UK, 2022, 106 min. English spoken, Dutch subtitles.
