UK Premiere: The Nowhere Inn (15*) +Virtual ScreenTalk with St Vincent

Doc'n Roll Film Festival 2021

Annie Clark (St Vincent) and Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney) look at each other in portrait in a still from The Nowhere Inn

Starring real-life friends Annie Clark (Grammy-winning artist St Vincent) and Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney), this is a mischievous, metafictional and frequently laugh-out-loud funny account. 

The pair band together to make a documentary about St Vincent’s music, touring life and on-stage persona. But they quickly discover unpredictable forces lurking within the subject and the 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 and increasingly fractured commentary on reality, identity and authenticity. A music documentary like no other, this is the story of two close friends who attempt to wrestle the truth out of a complex subject before the hall of mirrors that is their artistic lives devours them completely.

After the film, St Vincent joins us for a ScreenTalk via Zoom, hosted by Miranda Sawyer.
