MUTINY IN HEAVEN is the first fully authorized telling of the history of The Birthday Party, one of underground music’s most notorious and influential bands. Narrated exclusively by the original band members, this film delves deep into a band’s psyche, chronicling how Nick Cave and his school friends startled audiences with their confrontational performances, primal screams, outlaw gothic horror, and anarchic lifestyle. Featuring never-before-seen personal footage from band members, dynamic animation sequences, and jaw-dropping concert clips, the film provides a sweaty, electrifying front-row seat to one of the most legendary live acts in rock history.

“There’s perhaps few other bands with a reputation as mythic as The Birthday Party.” – NME

“Thrilling… a must-see for post-punk fans and anyone seeking to join the dots of Nick Cave’s remarkable and ongoing 40+ year career journey.” – Cinema Australia

Staff Pick: Rachel, Markelle

Markelle: I’m also interested in the special premiere screening for 3 days only of Mutiny in Heaven: Nick Cave and The Birthday Party. I’m a fan of Nick Cave and Rowland S. Howard so I’m interested in learning more about The Birthday Party and seeing old concert footage.”
