Doc Duck Goose Presents...
Stories We Tell
In this inspired, genre-twisting new film, Oscar®-nominated writer/director Sarah Polley discovers that the truth depends on who’s telling it. Polley is both filmmaker and detective as she investigates the 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, all interconnecting to paint a profound, funny and poignant picture of the larger human story.

Screening starts at 7pm
For the next couple of Months we are teaming up with two great projects to curate and help run our weekly Chapel Cinema nights.
Rotating between the two each week;
- Doc Duck Goose will be screening the most exciting and stimulating character-based documentary films
- Action On The Side are a local and independent film-making collective who run month long (weekend-based) film making projects, allowing people to build a network of collaborators, share experience and start making films together in London. They will be screening some of their favourite films with an extra special screening of some of their short-films just before.
