Fame and family are two elements that don't always mix well. Relationships that were already fragile could break apart under the heat of the spotlight, or egos and ambition could fundamentally alter how everyone relates. And those themes come into play in the documentary "Mistaken For Strangers," a behind-the-scenes look at touring with indie faves The National.

Mistaken For Strangers

Fame and family are two elements that don't always mix well. Relationships that were already fragile could break apart under the heat of the spotlight, or egos and ambition could fundamentally alter how everyone relates. And those themes come into play in the documentary "Mistaken For Strangers," a behind-the-scenes look at touring with indie faves The National.

While the band is already made up of two sets of brothers—Aaron and Bryce Dessner and Scott and Bryan Devendorf—it's frontman Matt Berninger who stands alone. But that all changed when The National hit the road in support of High Violet, asking his younger, aspiring filmmaker brother Tom Berninger to come along as an assistant to the tour manager. Tom used the opportunity to bring his cameras along as well to document the trip, but as you'll see in this exclusive clip, he was also tasked with several big responsibilities and rules to keep the tour machine moving.

A doc that we noted features "thrilling and candid on-stage footage that allows the band’s music to come alive," "Mistaken For Strangers" is in theaters, on demand and on iTunes on March 28th. For theatre info and to purchase the film, click here. Watch below.
