The meta-production called The Nowhere Inn will be directed by Bill Benz and follows St. Vincent attempting to make a music documentary about herself.
A new meta-film that follows Carrie Brownstein as she tries to make a concert documentary about St. Vincent will debut at the 2020 Sundance Festival.
The two artists have been involved in multiple projects together. This includes a series of Instagram videos showing the two artists in a surreal interview setting answering bizarre questions. St. Vincent also produced the most recent Sleater-Kinney album The Centre Won’t Hold.
Deadline’s description of the film explains the basic premise: “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. But when she hires a close friend to direct, notions of reality, identity, and authenticity grow increasingly distorted and bizarre.”
If the movie reflects St. Vincent’s real life persona, we should be in for a treat of deadpan humour that allows us into the weird and wonderful world of the eclectic artist.
Sundance Festival 2020 will be happening January 23rd through to February 2nd in Park City. With a ridiculous number of movies showing at the festival (118 to be exact), this will definitely be one movie to keep an eye on.
