THIS MUCH I KNOW TO BE TRUE (15)

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis

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 and Carnage.

In this documentary of their first ever performances of these albums, filmed in spring 2021 on location in London and Brighton, we see the two, accompanied by singers and string quartet, as they nurture each song into existence.

The film features a special appearance by close friend and long-term collaborator, Marianne Faithfull. Shot in colour by and with cinematography by Robbie Ryan, This Much I Know to Be True is a companion piece to Dominik’s 2016 film One More Time with Feeling. It reaches into the deep friendship and personal relationship between Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, something glimpsed in the 2014 Cave pseudo-documentary, 20,000 Days on Earth. The film proves to be another significant moment in the journeys of Cave and Ellis, capturing the mood and spirit of the pair as they move through a new, optimistic phase.
