The National: A Skin, A Night

2008 NR

Journey into the creative process of Brooklyn indie rock band the National with this unique documentary. Filmmaker Vincent Moon's cameras follow the band as they make their fourth album, "Boxer," and work to diversify their sound. More than just a technical examination of the recording process, the film uncovers the mental and emotional challenges, collaborative highs and lows, and quest for fresh ideas that drive this -- or indeed any -- band.
