These last few years have seen a number of collaborations between Jim Jarmusch and rock musician Jack White (of The White Stripes & The Raconteurs). For the sake of trivia, here's an overview:
May 2003 – Jim Jarmusch interviews Jack and Meg White (The White Stripes), in Interview Magazine [here].
September 2003 – Coffee and Cigarettes premieres at the Venice Film Festival. The White Stripes star in the segment "Jack Shows Meg His Tesla Coil" [here].
Summer 2004 – In an interview, Jim Jarmusch mentions that The White Stripes recently asked him to direct one of their videos, but that he had to turn them down due to lack of time.
2005 – Not strictly a collaboration with Jack White, but close enough: Broken Flowers is released, featuring two songs by by The Greenhornes – "There is an End," a collaboration with Holly Golightly (who was also featured on the 2003 White Stripes song, "It's True That We Love One Another"), and "Unnatural Habitat". In 2004, Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler of The Greenhornes were in The Do-Whaters, a band formed and led by Jack White (2004), and again teamed up with him, forming the Raconteurs in 2006 (along with Brendan Benson). Furthermore, The Greenhornes opened for the White Stripes on tour, in 2005.
January 2006 – The White Stripes release a limited edition (2,000 pressed) double A-sided 12" vinyl single with remixes of "Blue Orchid" by Michel Gondry and Jim Jarmusch (pictured on the left, along with a snippet of Jarmusch's remix). [Remarkably, still on sale here] [Some more info here]
