St. Vincent and Carrie Brownstein Movie “The Nowhere Inn” to Premiere at Sundance

The lineup for the 2020 Sundance Film Festival was announced today and among them is The Nowhere Inn, in which St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) and Carrie Brownstein of Sleater-Kinney play versions of themselves. Clark and Brownstein co-wrote the film together, which was directed by Bill Benz. The film will premiere in the festival’s Midnight series.

Here’s how the Sundance website describes the film: “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.”

Clark produced Sleater-Kinney’s The Center Won’t Hold album, which came out in August.

St. Vincent’s last album of original music was 2017’s MASSEDUCTION, which was followed by 2018’s MassEducation, a stripped down version of the album.

Don’t forget that Sleater-Kinney is on one of the two covers of our current print issue, the My Favorite Album Issue, in which we interview each of them about The Center Won’t Hold and their all-time favorite album.
