Ahead of its premiere at the Berlin Film Festival later this month, the trailer for the upcoming Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ documentary has been revealed. Titled This Much I Know To Be True, it explores the inner workings behind their most-recent albums, Ghosteen and Carnage.
“I would have defined myself as a musician or a writer,” Cave says at the beginning of the new clip, “and I’m trying to wean myself off those definitions of myself that are about my occupation, and see myself as a person. … As a husband, and father, and friend, and citizen that makes music and writes stuff. Rather than the other way around.”
Directed by Andrew Dominik, This Much I Know To Be True, has yet to receive an official release date. It will premiere sometime between February 10-20 at the festival. Carnage was Cave and Ellis’ first record together, which was released last February. In 2019, Cave & The Bad Seeds released their most recent album, Ghosteen.
The long-time collaborative duo has been busy since the release of Carnage. Cave announced a memoir, the two detailed a spring tour that kicks off in March, and they teamed up for the soundtrack of another upcoming documentary about French nature.
