The mockumentary is written by St. Vincent aka Annie Clark and best friend Carrie Brownstein and sees Clarke playing a fictionalized, satirical version of herself.
speaking about experience DiversityVincent said: “It was an incredibly warm and welcoming way to make my first foray into acting, because it was a script I co-wrote with my best friend, and my own version of was driving
“So it was as soft a landing as one can get. But it can also be hard not to keep some distance.”
Speaking about the artist’s role as producer in several new music documentaries, Clark said nowhere inn was far away from him.
“With that, you’re operating in the realm of propaganda,” she said of such documentaries.
“And that’s not what this movie is about. Carey and I talked about how usually the purpose of a film about a musician or pop star would be to humanize and love them.
“With this, it is possible that both of us are playing the role of unsuitable people. [Laughs.] Intentionally so. Its purpose is not necessarily to be dear to anyone.”
The film is released in theaters and on Apple TV+ this Friday (September 17) and follows St. Vincent’s most recent album “Daddy’s Home” and Slater-Kinney’s “Path of Wellness”.
Meanwhile, St. Vincent recently made his live show debut in support of “Daddy’s Home” in Portland, Maine.
In addition to the previously announced festivals at Mad Cool in Madrid and NOS Alive in Lisbon, the tour will take place in the UK and Europe next year. You can find full dates here.
