Academy Award-nominated director Mike Mills (20th Century Women, Beginners), teamed up with MPC colorist Mark Gethin on The National’s stunning new short film I Am Easy To Find starring Academy Award-winner Alicia Vikande, as well as the Hairpin Turns music video for a track from their new album I Am Easy To Find.
The genesis of the film was unique – Mike Mills boldly introduced himself to lead singer Matt Berninger in 2017, as he was in search of his next project and wanted to do a music video for them.
But Berninger had something bigger in mind and shortly after, the most ambitious project of The National’s career was born. Berninger was already a fan of Mills’ films and gifted him with the keys to the band’s creative process.
The result was I Am Easy to Find, a 24-minute film by Mills starring Alicia Vikander, and I Am Easy to Find, a 68-minute album by The National.
