The Palermo Shooting (2008)

Grinderman (featuring Nick Cave & Warren Ellis alongside fellow Bad Seeds Martyn Casey and James Sclavunos) contributed two tracks to the soundtrack for Wim Wenders' The Palermo Shooting (2008). The film, written and directed by Wim Wenders and stars Campino, Dennis Hopper, Giovanna Mezzogiorno, Lou Reed as himself, and an uncredited Milla Jovovich, also playing herself.

The film was released in Germany on 20 November 2008. The film had its U.S. premiere on 20 January 2009 at the Berlin and Beyond film festival at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco.

The film follows a German photographer (played by Campino, singer of German punk band Die Toten Hosen) who comes to Palermo because he needs to make a clean break from his past. In the city, he meets a young woman (Mezzogiorno) and a completely different way of life.

Grinderman contributed Dream (Song for Finn) & Song for Frank to the soundtrack.
