2010 was a big year for The National. About to embark on their biggest ever tour after years of struggling to gain their current status as one of America’s most lauded guitar bands, Matt Berninger chose the occasion to invite along his younger brother Tom, who joined the band’s crew for the tour. Tom – a heavy metal fan and amateur horror filmmaker – brought his camera with him, and begins to make waves in a world he doesn’t understand. The result is one of the best music documentaries of recent years, as well as a funny, moving and insightful portrait of love and rivalry between siblings.
The EEFF welcomes the Berninger brothers for a special on stage Q&A and live satellite broadcast screening as part of this year’s EEFF at Hackney Picturehouse on 14 June. (
