NEW YORK —

The Tribeca Film Festival will open with a documentary about the National, along with a performance by the Brooklyn band.

The festival announced Thursday that "Mistaken for Strangers," which documents the National on tour, will premiere April 17. The film is directed by Tom Berninger, brother to lead to singer Matt Berninger.

Tribeca's Chief Creative Officer Geoff Gilmore called the film "a highly personal and lighthearted story about brotherly love."

The band will perform following the film's premiere. In 2011, Tribeca also paired a movie and concert with Elton John performing after Cameron Crowe's music documentary "The Union."

The Tribeca Film Festival runs April 17 through April 28. It will next week announce the feature film slate for its 12th annual festival.
