Co-written, produced, and starring the two musicians, the collaborative project was first announced in April 2019 after the pair joined forces on a series of mock interview segments in promotion of St. Vincent’s 2017 album, ‘MASSEDUCTION’.

Having been premiered at Sundance Film Festival 2020, The Nowhere Inn – directed by Bill Benz – will be given a cinematic release on September 17, 2021, when it will also land on Apple TV.
“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,” St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) wrote on social media tonight (May 18).

In a trailer for the movie, which also stars Dakota Johnson as herself, Clark is seen being filmed by Sleater-Kinney‘s Brownstein while out on the road in support of ‘MASSEDUCTION’.
“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,” Clark says in the clip, before things take a surreal and sinister turn.
An official description of The Nowhere Inn reads: “From real-life friends Annie Clark (a.k.a. GRAMMY award-winning recording and touring artist St. Vincent) and Carrie Brownstein (Portlandia, Sleater-Kinney) comes the metafictional account of two creative forces banding 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 filmmaker that threaten to derail the friendship, the project, and the duo’s creative lives.”
