“Mistaken For Strangers” Interview with Tom Berninger

Alamo Drafthouse Tom Berninger

We recently had a big event at Alamo Drafthouse here in Denver with none other than Tom Berninger, the director of “Mistaken For Strangers” and brother to The National’s lead singer Matt Berninger. Tom is a quirky, wicked smart, and hilarious dude and we dug deep into the process of making the film (which is both about him and The National at the same time), what his relationship with his brother is like in real life, his hobbies (he’s not into Indie Rock at all), and some of his fears and struggles with being a creative. I was really moved by what Tom had to say, and I wish we had another hour to talk, and I’m so stoked we were able to record this for you.

Watch Mistaken For Strangers if you haven’t already, it’s worth every penny.
