Paolo Nutini's Dystopian Short Film For "Iron Sky"
By Michelle Salgado

Paolo Nutini has paired up with director Daniel Wolfe to create a 9-minute short film for his latest single, “Iron Sky."  The short film is a hauntingly dystopian look at those rejected by society. Religious imagery is paired with images of distraught individuals as Charlie Chaplin’s speech from The Great Dictator narrates a portion of the film reminding people that they are men not machines and only they can make their lives beautiful. Daniel Wolfe was inspired by the speech and built on it to create the short film which focuses on a small town with a serious problem with drug addiction. The eerie video coincides perfectly with the hauntingly beautiful nature of the song itself.

Watch the short film, which Gizmodo dubbed the best music video in years, below!
