WIENERWORLD (WNRD2608 05)
When three Grammy Award musician St. Vincent hires her friend Carrie Brownstein to film a backstage documentary about her public persona, the project leads them both down a rabbit hole of warped identities and outrageous egos in this hilarious meta-fictional fever dream.
St. Vincent – The Nowhere Inn, a 19 music track documentary, takes a rare glimpse into the artist's life and career and is released to coincide with her 2022 World Tour and Glastonbury stage appearance.
As Annie Clark (aka St. Vincent) said in an NME interview about the film: "…it was an incredibly warm and welcoming way to do my first foray into acting, because it was a script that I'd co-written with my best friend, and playing versions of myself."
From real-life friends Annie Clark (a.k.a. GRAMMY award-winning recording and touring artist St. Vincent) and Carrie Brownstein (Portlandia, Sleater-Kinney, the best-selling Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl) comes the meta-fictional account of two creative forces banding together to make a documentary about St. Vincent's music, touring life and on-stage persona. However, they quickly discover unpredictable forces lurking within the subject and filmmaker that threaten to derail the friendship, the project and the duo's creative lives. From first-time filmmaker Bill Benz (Portlandia, At Home With Amy Sedaris) comes a densely woven, laugh-out-loud funny and increasingly fractured commentary on reality, identity and authenticity.
