Watch Stories We Tell
- 1 hr 48 min
Stories We Tell is an engaging documentary that tells the story of one family through interviews and narrative. Oscar-nominated Canadian director Sarah Polley and the National Film Board of Canada explore Polley's family to uncover the truth about her family and her own identity. In a detective-like role, Polley interviews her siblings, father, relatives and family friends to piece together a family chronology and uncover family secrets. The film weaves together Polley's father's narration of his memoir and Super-8 film of home movies to create a seamless timeline which seems to only create more questions. This genre-bending film explains that the truth depends on which person is telling it. At the Toronto Film Critics Association Awards, Stories We Tell won the prize for best Canadian film.
