Tribeca Fest: The National, Elaine Stritch

The 2013 Tribeca Film Festival will open with the world premiere of “Mistaken For Strangers” (pictured), a new documentary about indie rock band The National. Set for the festival’s first night on April 17, the debut of “Mistaken for Strangers” will be immediately followed by a special performance from The National. “Mistaken for Strangers” is directed by Tom Berninger, whose brother, Matt Berninger, is the lead singer of the band. Read the official synopsis here. That link also gives info about another Tribeca doc, for those of you who are not into indie rock. It’s about 87-year-old Broadway legend Elaine Stritch. It’s called “Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me.” Undoubtedly, its screenings will be sold out.
