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.”
