The National tour film to receive world premiere in New York

The National's tour movie, Mistaken For Strangers, is set to stage its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York on April 17.

Mistaken For Strangers was directed by Tom Berninger, younger brother to lead singer Matt Berninger. The documentary follows the two brothers through the band's 2010 tour. Tom Berninger said: "When my brother asked me along on tour as a roadie, I thought I might as well bring a camera to film the experience. What started as a pretty modest tour documentary has, over the last two and a half years, grown into something much more personal, and hopefully more entertaining."

You can see examples from Tom Berninger's work with the band on The National’s website.

The band will play live following the screening of the film.
