ONLINE: Stories We Tell
In this inspired film, released in Protected content , Academy Award-nominated writer/director Sarah Polley discovers that the truth depends on who's telling it. Here, she investigates secrets kept by a family of storytellers. She playfully interviews and interrogates a cast of characters of varying reliability, eliciting refreshingly candid, yet mostly contradictory answers to the same questions. As each relates their version of the family mythology, present-day recollections shift into nostalgia-tinged glimpses of their mother, who departed too soon, leaving a trail of unanswered questions. Polley unravels the paradoxes to reveal the essence of family: always complicated, warmly messy, and fiercely loving. Stories We Tell explores the elusive nature of truth and memory, but at its core is a deeply personal film about how our narratives shape and define us as individuals and families. Won major film festival awards at Sundance, Venice, Toronto, and Telluride film festivals.
