Film Friday: Stories We Tell

In Stories We Tell Sarah Polley (who directed Take This Waltz and Away From Her) turns the camera on her own family as she conducts a series of interviews with them about the life of her mother, who died when she was 11. She uses old Super 8 film alongside reconstructed footage to reveal stories about her mother that throw up some big questions about her own identity. This is a brilliant documentary that shows how every seemingly 'normal' family has stories to tell, and makes you think about how memory can affect the truth, love and the bonds we make in our lives.
