The 2020 edition of the film festival will also debut films on Taylor Swift, Pepe the Frog, and Gloria Steinem
Directed by Bill Benz, the film co-stars and was co-written by the duo, who play themselves. “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,” the synopsis reads. “But when she hires a close friend to direct, notions of reality, identity, and authenticity grow increasingly distorted and bizarre.”
While no further information has been revealed about the film, the collaboration follows the release of Sleater-Kinney’s latest album, The Center Won’t Hold, which was produced by St. Vincent. The post-riot-grrrl pioneers first announced their collaboration with the “Los Ageless” singer with a snapshot of all four in a recording studio back in May.
The Sundance Film Festival 2020 will take place between January 23 and February 2. Also joining the line-up is Miss Americana, a new documentary about Taylor Swift; In Feels Good Man, which follows Pepe the Frog’s creator, Matt Furie, and his fight to save his drawing from becoming a symbol of hatred; and The Glorias, a film about feminist and activist, Gloria Steinem.
