(November 24, 2014) City Winery Chicago, 1200 W. Randolph Street, continues its Cinema & Carafe House screening series with the Nick Cave movie 20,000 Days on Earth, where it won World Cinema Documentary awards for directing and editing at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. This unique blend of documentary essay and cinematic fiction features Nick Cave as both subject and coconspirator, intimately documenting his artistic process and combining it with a fictional staged narrative of his 20,000th day on Earth. 20,000 Days on Earth shows Tuesday, Dec. 2, 8 p.m. in City Winery’s performance venue projected onto dual 90-inch screens and heard on City Winery’s state-of-the-art Meyer Sound® system. Tickets are $5, and guests receive 50% off carafes of City Winery house-made wines and $10 flatbreads.

20,000 Days on Earth: Tuesday, Dec. 2, 8 p.m. ($5 general admission)
20,000 Days On Earth takes us deep into the heart of how myth, memory, love and loss shape our lives, every single day. A line in Nick Cave’s songwriting notebook calculating how many days he’d been alive inspired the film’s title. The film delves into Nick’s artistic processes, unpicking the stuff that makes him tick. Fusing drama and documentary to weave a cinematic day-in-the-life with unique vérité observations of his full creative cycle. Visual artists Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard direct their feature film debut.

All City Winery Chicago events are open to all ages and start at 8pm, unless noted.
