New Nick Cave and Warren Ellis Documentary Announced

Nick Cave has announced a forthcoming documentary titled This Much I Know to Be True depicting his creative partnership with longtime collaborator and Bad Seed Warren Ellis. The film “captures Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ exceptional creative relationship as they bring to life the songs from albums Ghosteen and Carnage,” Cave posted on his official Instagram account earlier this week. The film will be directed by Andrew Dominik, who also helmed the 2016 Nick Cave doc One More Time with Feeling. This Much I Know to Be True is scheduled for release later this year.

According to a recent Deadline exclusive, This Much I Know to Be True was shot on location in London and Brighton in 2021, and will act as a companion piece to One More Time with Feeling. The documentary will reportedly feature an appearance from Marianne Faithfull, as Deadline points out.

In addition to his work on One More Time with Feeling and This Much I Know to Be True, Dominik has collaborated with Cave and Ellis on The Assassination Of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, and the upcoming Marilyn Monroe biopic Blonde (the musicians scored both films).
