This Much I Know To Be True

Shot over five days at Battersea Arts Centre and on location in London & Brighton, This Much I Know To Be True captures Nick Cave & Warren Ellis’ exceptional creative relationship as they bring to life songs from albums Ghosteen and Carnage.
In this document of their first ever performances of these albums, filmed ahead of their 2021 UK tour, we will see the two, accompanied by singers and string quartet, as they nurture each song into existence. Interstitial pieces between the songs illuminate the cosmology and themes of the music.
There will also be a special appearance by close friend and long-term collaborator, Marianne Faithfull.
