“a singular vision steeped in zaniness”

—Eric Kohn for IndieWire

About the film:

World Premiere at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival. 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.

About the filmmakers:

Bill Benz started his career as a PA and editor before directing the third season of Kroll Show and multiple episodes of Portlandia, Man Seeking Woman, Son of Zoran, Lady Dynamite, Detroiters, and three specials for Adult Swim. 

The mockumentary thriller The Nowhere Inn is his feature directorial debut, co-written by stars Carrie Brownstein and Annie Clark, who enlisted Benz to helm their project. Read more here.
