Swan Street, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS1 6LW

Recorded in June 2020 as the UK slowly emerged from lockdown, Idiot Prayer was conceived as a reaction to the confinement and isolation of the preceding months. Initially imagined as an online only event, fans will now be able to see the film in cinemas as an extended cut featuring four unseen performances.  

The film sees Nick Cave play his songs at the piano in a rarely seen stripped back form, from early Bad Seeds and Grinderman, right through to the most recent Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds album, Ghosteen. The film features tracks including Into My Arms, The Mercy Seat, Higgs Boson Blues and Girl In Amber. 

Director:    Nick Cave, Robbie Ryan
Starring:    Nick Cave
