Whether jumping onto canvas covered in blue paint, screaming “I AM HUMAN” while eating off the floor, or writhing blindly across broken glass and barbed wire with a bucket on her head, Izabella Barta (Cate Blanchett) is the most acclaimed performance artist of our generation. Now, on the eve of a career retrospective, she faces her greatest challenge: a signature performance worthy of her storied career. With weeks to go before opening, a provocative figure in her life returns to complicate things: her former collaborator and lover Dimo (Fred Armisen), the so-called “prankster of the art world.”

[…] Thomas says Cate Blanchett also enjoyed the fast pace of “Documentary Now!” shooting. Instead of waiting for hours in her trailer while technicians changed the light, for example, Blanchett would “just come and do it, put this wig on, get in there, we’re done. It’s just very fast.”
