Mistaken for Strangers

No matter how familiar the formula is, concert documentaries (at least when they're following musicians I enjoy) never seem to get old. The latest band to get the documentary treatment is The National, but this one is much different than you might expect. The man behind Mistaken for Strangers is Tom Berninger, brother of the band's frontman, Matt Berninger. When Tom is invited to be the assistant tour manager and document the band's trip, his film becomes a way to accomplish something significant with his life. The break away from normal concert documentary style is unique and should make for an interesting perspective on the rock band when it premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival tomorrow. Watch below!

Here's the first trailer for Tom Berninger's Mistaken for Strangers from The National (via The Playlist):

Here's a description from the Tribeca Film Festival: "The prolific, innovative rock band The National is on its biggest tour to date, but newbie roadie Tom, brother of frontman Matt Berninger, cannot help throwing a wrench into the well-oiled music machine. Following the musicians and crew day and night, in places public and, ahem, private, Tom is reprimanded time and again. As endearing as the boy next door and embodying the wherewithal of a Christopher Guest character, he brings a delightfully awkward humor into the serious world of the seriously awesome The National. Brother Matt and his bandmates lend witty and profound colors to the mix, allowing carte blanche access to everything and anything that goes down on tour." Cool?

      they are real and they are bloody awesome! check out their lyrics - incredible. you might recognise them best for being used as the opening and closing tracks to Warrior (if you watched it)
