Retracing hidden paths

OUT NOW! A devastating, beautiful documentary about fatherhood and memory, STORIES WE TELL defies conventions spectacularly.

Documentary Stories We Tell hits Berlin cinemas March 27

She moved us with Away from Her and divided us with Take this Waltz; now actor-turned director Sarah Polley returns with her most remarkable film yet. Pivoting her story on interviews with her family and the eloquent narration of her nurturing dad Mike, Polley sets out to finally determine who her biological father is but instead finds something stranger. A devastating, beautiful film about fatherhood and memory, Stories We Tell picks apart the documentary rulebook before opening a window to that most endearing of bonds.

Stories We Tell | directed by Sarah Polley (USA 2012). Starts March 27
