Mike Mills Directs New Short Film for The National Starring Alicia Vikander

Both the subject of their own films (Mistaken for Strangers and A Skin, A Night) as well as peppering the soundtracks of other movies (Win Win, Warrior, Warm Bodies), The National are no strangers to the world of cinema. They’ve now formed a tighter bond with the announcement of their new album, I Am Easy to Find, and a new short film, both out May 17.

The 24-minute short film, a teaser of which was unveiled today, is directed by Mike Mills (2oth Century WomenBeginners) and stars Alicia Vikander. Described as “a life in 164 moments,” the black-and-white film will arrive on the same day as the album while the Ex Machina star also graces the cover of their 16-track new album. As to the relationship between the album and short, they say, “The former is not the video for the latter; the latter is not the soundtrack to the former.”

Alicia Vikander Joins Toronto-Bound Documentary ‘Anthropocene’ As Narrator

Alicia Vikander Joins Toronto-Bound Documentary ‘Anthropocene’ As Narrator

Tomb Raider and The Danish Girl star Alicia Vikander has lent her voice to big-canvas documentary Anthropocene: The Human Epoch, which will get its world premiere this week at the Toronto Film Festival.

The science-themed doc, from filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier and photographer Edward Burtynsky, contends that human impact on the planet means we have entered a new geological era.

The Toronto-based trio travelled to six of seven continents and 20 countries (the project was entirely carbon offset), documenting evidence of human domination, from concrete seawalls that cover 60% of China’s mainland coast to potash mines in Russia’s Ural Mountains, and marble quarries in Italy to surreal phosphate tailings ponds in Florida.

The film is in English, Russian, Italian, German, Mandarin and Cantonese with English subtitles. Pic is being released in Canada by Mongrel Media. Seville International is handling international sales.

“Alicia’s exceptional voice, and her considerable talent in knowing how to use it, has elevated our film enormously and brings a beauty and hope to the narration that is crucial. We are deeply honored by her participation,” Baichwal said.

The film is part of The Anthropocene Project, which also includes exhibitions, VR and books. It is the third in a trilogy of films that also include Manufactured Landscapesand Watermark.

Vikander recently wrapped shooting on the Wash Westmoreland thriller Earthquake Bird.
