watch Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile documentary ‘Friends of Wonder’


Friends of Wonder is a new half-hour documentary about Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile and their 2017 collaborative tour. It’s also about the Loew’s Jersey Theater, one of the five lavish Loew’s “Wonder” theaters in the U.S. that was recently renovated and which Kurt and Courtney played in November. The film was directed and edited by duo and couple Vincent and Chin, who made 2015 documentary The Lost Arcade (about the Chinatown Fair arcade). Vincent says:

While editing the movie Irene and I would constantly look at each other and smile. We were editing scenes with two of our favorite musicians performing in a magical setting. We dreamed up this crazy movie about a mysterious movie palace and this concert – and the film turned out exactly how we imagined it. That’s not always how it works out.

The film was backed by file hosting service WeTransfer and you can read lots more about the making of Friends of Wonder (and Loew’s Jersey Theater) here, and you can watch the whole film below.

Meanwhile: Courtney Barnett has a new album and tour on the way, and Kurt Vile may be making an album with Dean Ween.
