The GRAMMY Museum was thrilled to host a special screening of Danny Cohen’s film about Courtney Barnett, ANONYMOUS CLUB, followed by a post-screening conversation with Courtney Barnett moderated by Devendra Banhart and a performance by Courtney and her collaborator, Stella Mozgawa. The duo recreated some of the instrumental songs inspired from the film, which make up Barnett's album End Of The Day.
Shot on vivid 16mm film over a three-year period, ANONYMOUS CLUB chronicles notoriously shy, Melbourne-based musician and former Best New Artist GRAMMY Nominee Courtney Barnett’s ups and downs on the world tour for her album Tell Me How You Really Feel. Featuring Barnett’s unguarded narration from her audio diary, recorded on a dictaphone provided by filmmaker Danny Cohen, the film delivers frank and unprecedented insight into Barnett’s creative process, the sacrifices and inner conflicts set in motion by fame, and the sometimes dark backdrop to her whimsical, relatably poetic compositions.
