This Much I Know to Be True

A documentary exploring Nick Cave and Warren Ellis' creative relationship as they prepare for their first performances after a pandemic hiatus.


Why watch this film?

Directed by Andrew Dominik ("The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford"), this documentary is a companion piece to his previous production, "Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds: Again, but with Feeling" and, thus, an essential piece for the musician's fans. The narrative of 'This Much I Know to be True' explores the friendship between Cave and his collaborator Warren Ellis as they prepare for the first performances of the albums 'Ghosteen' and 'Carnage' in Spring 2021, after a long season where the musicians spent much time away from the stages and their audience due to the pandemic. The directing and music are sublime, but what truly makes this documentary powerful is the musician's emotionality, the lessons he shares, and the general optimism of the production.
