Synopsis

With unprecedented, intimate access to the private life of Courtney Barnett, this innovative and stylised 16mm feature documentary follows a paradoxically introverted performer and anti-influencer, who, at the height of success, is ready to walk away. Recording her innermost thoughts on a Dictaphone over a period of three years, Courtney begins her slow acceptance of filmmaker Danny Cohen’s camera. This unique filming process mirrors Courtney’s gradual search for purpose and emergence as a woman finally and firmly in control.
