20,000 Days on Earth screens during SFIFF on Monday April 28th, 9:45pm, at Sundance
Kabuki Cinema, and Thursday May 1st, 6:15pm at New People Cinema.
The Nick Cave biopic 20,000 Days on Earth is one of two music-related films that Amoeba Music is co-presenting during this year's 57th San Francisco International Film Festival (SFIFF), which just kicked off its action-packed 15 day schedule. 20,000 Days is just one of about 30 documentaries in this year's festival that include other music-themed films such as the Grateful Dead-related The Other One: The Long, Strange Trip of Bob Weir, and Heaven Adores You (the other Amoeba co-sponsored festival screening) about the life of singer-songwriter Elliott Smith up to its tragic ending at age 34.
Meanwhile under the Festival's World Cinema category is We Are The Best! - the Swedish feature film by Lukas Moodysson set in the '80s about three young teenager girls who form a punk band. Coming of age comedy Ping Pong Summer is about a shy hip-hop obsessed 13 year old in the Maryland seaside town of Ocean Side in the mid '80s during a life-changing summer vacation. Susan Sarandon stars in a role that includes a scene of her wielding a fish as a weapon. Another SFIFF attraction is Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon's culinary and wit-driven travel adventure sequel The Trip To Italy - worth it for the Michael Caine impressions alone. Above and below are trailers for each of these films. For the full schedule and more info, go to the 57th Annual San Francisco International Film Festival website.
