Watch the trailer for St. Vincent and Carrie Brownstein’s film ‘The Nowhere Inn’


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.”
