After Portland slacker John Callahan [Joaquin Phoenix] nearly loses his life in a car accident, the last thing he intends to do is give up drinking. But when he reluctantly enters treatment – with encouragement from his girlfriend [Rooney Mara] and a charismatic sponsor [Jonah Hill] – Callahan discovers a gift for drawing edgy, irreverent newspaper cartoons that develop a national following and grant him a new lease on life. Based on a true story, this poignant, insightful and often funny drama about the healing power of art is adapted from Callahan’s autobiography and directed by Gus Van Sant. Jack Black, Carrie Brownstein, Beth Ditto and Kim Gordon also star.

With social media ever more present in our lives, blurring the barriers between ordinary and famous, for KENZO’s Fall-Winter 2016 film Carol Lim & Humberto Leon have invited Carrie Brownstein to take a look at the invisible digital walls that separate us from our favorite personalities and icons, and the curious conceit of a dream come true.

The Realest Real stars Laura Harrier, Mahershala Ali, Natasha Lyonne, Kim Gordon, and Rowan Blanchard and will premiere on Monday, September 12th during New York Fashion Week. The film is written and directed by Carrie Browstein of Sleater Kinney.
