Documentary on The National to Open Tribeca Film Festival
The 2013 Tribeca Film Festival will open with the world premiere of Mistaken for Strangers, a documentary about The National’s biggest tour to date. The film follows director Tom Berninger (the younger brother of lead singer Matt Berninger) as he chronicles his experience on tour with the band. Inevitably, Tom’s moonlighting as an irreverent documentarian creates some drama for The National on the road. The screening will take place on Wednesday, April 17 and will be followed by a special performance by The National. The Tribeca Film Festival will run through April 28. Advanced selection ticket packages and passes go on sale Monday, March 4 for American Express cardholders and on Monday, March 11 for the general public. Evening and weekend screenings will cost $16, while late night and weekday matinee screenings will cost $8.
