The life and work of acclaimed Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett will be examined in a new documentary.

The feature titled Anonymous Club was announced as a recipient of Screen Australia's $2.5 million AUD in documentary production funding, NME points out.

A brief synopsis on Screen Australia's website points to Anonymous Club "exploring the inner life of the notoriously shy artist amidst her significant rise to fame."

Taking its name from the closing track of Barnett's 2013 EP How to Carve a Carrot Into a RoseAnonymous Club was written and directed by Danny Cohen, who previously worked with the songwriter on music videos like "Everybody Here Hates You" and "Need a Little Time."

The film is produced by Philippa Campey (Brazen Hussies) and Samantha Dinning (No Time for Quiet) and will be distributed by Film Art Media. A release date for Anonymous Club has not been shared.

Barnett shared a live album last year and has yet to follow 2018's Tell Me How You Really Feel.
