Hot Docs 2013 & NXNE Present: Mistaken for Strangers

Director: Tom Berninger

We’re happy to announce we’re co-presenting a documentary on The NationalMistaken for Strangers – at this year’s Hot Docs. Ahead of the band’s NXNE headline performance, you can catch a behind-the-scenes, personal glimpse of life on the road during their 2010 High Violet tour.

Director Tom Berninger takes off on an international tour as a roadie with his older brother’s band. It’s a highly entertaining, personal twist on your typical tour documentary. Tom, a self-professed heavy metal and horror movie fan, is out of place in Matt’s world of brooding rock and increased recognition. The result is an intimate story of false starts, brotherly dynamics, and finding your own success.

April 30, 9:15 pm @ The Royal
May 2, 11:59 pm @ Bloor Hot Docs Cinema
May 5, 4:00 pm @ Bloor Hot Docs Cinema

For tickets and to find out more, head to Hot Docs. You can also follow @nxne for information and a chance to see the film.

And, of course, The National play a free show at YDS for NXNE 2013 on Friday, June 14.
