A unique one night only cinema event, One More Time With Feeling will be the first ever opportunity anyone will have to hear Skeleton Tree, the sixteenth studio album from Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds.
Directed by Andrew Dominik, (Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Killing Them Softly) the film will screen in cinemas across the world on 8th September, immediately prior to the release of Skeleton Tree the following day.
Originally a performance based concept, One More Time With Feeling evolved into something much more significant as it delves into the tragic backdrop of the writing and recording of the album. Interwoven throughout the Bad Seeds' filmed performance of the new album are interviews and footage shot by Andrew Dominik, accompanied by Cave's narration and improvised rumination.
Filmed in black-and-white and colour, in both 3D and 2D, the result is fragile, raw and a true testament to an artist trying to find his way through the darkness, and a documentation of the creation of an album.
Awarded many times for the music he composed for films, Nick Cave is also responsible for Andrew Dominik's The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. Cave is also an awarded screenplay writer who wrote the scripts for John Hillcoat's The Proposition and Lawless.
The feature 20,000 Days on Earth directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard depicted an in-depth view of a day in the life of Nick Cave. The film competed in 2014 for the Golden Tulip at the Istanbul Film Festival, where it won the FIPRESCI Prize.
