"Mistaken for Strangers" is, like its maker, scruffy, undisciplined and eager to be loved. The big surprise is how easy it is to comply.

Mistaken For Strangers
This film is a part of our Sound & Vision series presented in partnership with DRIP (records).
With a performance by NUMBTONGUE
Director: Tom Berninger
Hilarious and touching all at once, Mistaken for Strangers is part rock-doc, part buddy comedy, part emotionally honest portrait of failure and success. A documentary about the indie-rock band The National directed by the lead singer’s drifter brother, the film is an insightful investigation of complicated familial bonds.
NUMBTONGUE is a project of SC native Bobby Hatfield of The SeaWolf Mutiny. Often referred to as “psychedelic pop,” NUMBTONGUE explores sounds from soul to 90s alternative.
