Mutiny In Heaven is the story of Nick Cave's first band The Birthday Party’s ascent, apex and inevitable collapse - a thrilling tale of epic struggle, artistic genius and total dysfunctionality. Told in the group’s own words, Mutiny In Heaven brings the band’s story to the screen for the first time.
This is a twisted tale of ascent, realisation and implosion whilst dealing with issues of artistic muse, creativity, addiction, fame, interpersonal conflict and the unique relationship between creative vision and self-destruction - all underpinned by the dark, wry humour of the individual band members. Utilising exclusive, incredibly candid interviews, a wealth of rare and unseen archives, original artwork, unreleased tracks, studio footage, animation and multimedia content - the film is as visually rich as it is narratively riveting - a revealing look back at its key members’ origins, dreams, hopes and motivations.
Melkweg often hosts different types of programmes at the same time, such as concerts, club nights and films. Please note that there may occasionally be some noise pollution from other programmes during the screening.
