Mistaken for Strangers
- 75 min
- Directed by: Tom Berninger
- UK release: 27 June 2014
Documentary about US indie band The National. Director Berninger is the band's singer's younger brother, and the film – which chronicles his own fumbling attempts to be their roadie – is much about his relationship with his own brother as it is about the band's history. Smart, funny and heartwarming.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
