A new documentary on the creative partnership between Nick Cave and Warren Ellis premieres at Berlin Film Festival this month, and the first trailer is out today, as Deadline notes. Check it out below. This Much I Know to Be True, which documents Cave’s Ghosteen (with the Bad Seeds) and Carnage (with Ellis), is directed by their Australian compatriot Andrew Dominik, who enlisted the duo to score his 2007 movie The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and later shot the documentary One More Time With Feeling.
The film, due for U.S. release later this year, is “a portrait of the lives of all of us as we move from innocence to experience, attune to the world and its attendant loss, and eventually confront our own mortality,” according to press materials quoted by Deadline. Marianne Faithfull makes a guest appearance.
