Watch the Berlin era Nick Cave documentary “Stranger in a Strange land”

If you have seen Mark Reeder’s B-Movie: Lust and Sound in West Berlin, then you may recognize the footage used from the Nick Cave Documentary Stranger in a Strange land, filmed by Bram van Splunteren who followed the Australian expat while he lived in Berlin in 1987. In fact—the film is partly shot in Mark Reeder’s flat—where Nick had been living at the time, and also includes footage of rehearsals with the Bad Seeds. This was filmed right around the same time as the Wim Wenders film Der Himmel Über Berlin (Wings of Desire).

The film was originally Broadcasted by VPRO Dutch Television.
