When 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.

From real-life friends 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 subject and filmmaker that threaten to derail the friendship, the project, and the duo's creative lives.

From first-time filmmaker Bill Benz comes a densely woven, laugh-out-loud funny and increasingly fractured commentary on reality, identity, and authenticity. A 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.

"The Nowhere Inn is simultaneously satire and fan service, frothy fun and pretentious nonsense, depending on what the viewer wants it to be.” Hollywood Reporter
