On 2 May, the world premiere of our film about the classic Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds album Murder Ballads will be presented at the Aubin Cinema by the East End Film Festival in association with The Quietus. Following the screening we will take part in a Q&A with Luke Turner, associate editor of The Quietus.

The film, Do you love me like I love you: Murder Ballads, features a compelling collage of famous, infamous and unknown individuals talking directly to camera about what the music of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds means to them. The resulting 40 minute film is a subjective human portrait of the album told through those who have lived and loved the music. The film features former and current Bad Seeds members Blixa Bargeld, Mick Harvey, Warren Ellis, James Johnston and Jim Sclavunos, musician Annie Clark aka St. Vincent, photographers Bleddyn Butcher and Steve Gullick, authors Larry ‘Ratso’ Sloman, Ian Johnston and Matt Thorne and producer Victor van Vugt, among others. The seminal ‘Murder Ballads’ album, originally released in 1996 by Mute, marked the band’s biggest commercial success to date, helped by the duets with Kylie Mingue and PJ Harvey.

The screening takes place at the Aubin Cinema at 64 – 66 Redchurch Street in London, and is free, although space is limited. The event runs 12-4pm, with the premiere around 2.30pm. Two films from this ongoing series will be screened between 12-2pm, with the choice of films being voted for by readers of The Quietus.
