Stories We Tell

Stories We Tell, the self-reflective documentary by Sarah Polley, is very much aware of its storytelling. The story is told from multiple perspectives through interviews, narrative, home movie re-enactments, and lingering cinematography. It reveals the story of the filmmaker's family as a composite of the often inconsistent stories told by the individuals involved, shared for the first time through the vehicle of this project. With my blog entitled "another side to the story," I can't help but recommend it.
