DIRECTOR: DAVID BARNARD

A document that manages to bottle the fire of one of the fiercest rock outfits going, Live in Copenhagen catches Cave and company in support of their acclaimed album Skeleton Tree, their first tour in three years. Less performance than convocation, Barnard’s crucial concert film, shot at the Royal Arena in 2017, features cuts spanning the whole life of the Bad Seeds, and captures Cave’s extraordinary rapport with a crowd, backed by a battle-honed band that can turn on a dime from soaring rapture to walloping, raucous raw power.
