The latest trailer for St. Vincent and Carrie Brownstein’s movie The Nowhere Inn has been released.
The movie, which has been described as a “meta mockumentary” and was given its premiere at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival has been co-written, produced and also stars the two musicians and details a behind-the-scenes scenario as they attempt to create a documentary.
In what is being described as a satirical concert tour film, with both musicians playing themselves, the project has been directed by Bill Benz. “When St. Vincent sets out to make a documentary about her music, the goal is to both reveal and revel in the unadorned truth behind her on-stage persona,” the synopsis reads. “But when she hires a close friend to direct, notions of reality, identity, and authenticity grow increasingly distorted and bizarre.”
Set for a cinematic release on September 17, when it will also be uploaded to the streaming platform Apple TV, St. Vincent has talked up the project after dropping a new trailer: “Me and my bestie made a bananas art film…it was supposed to be a music doc but somewhere along the way, things went terribly wrong,” she said through a post on social media.
Speaking in the clip, she adds: “One of the reasons why I wanted to make a documentary in the first place is because I would finally be in control of the narrative.”
