CHLOTRUDIS co-presents Sarah Polley’s STORIES WE TELL at 11th ANNUAL INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL OF BOSTON
The Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film is pleased to join with the INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL OF BOSTON (IFFBoston) once again to co-present a Canadian film as part of the festival’s 11th year. We are particularly pleased to have the opportunity to co-present another film from acclaimed actor/director Sarah Polley the autobiographical STORIES WE TELL, her documentary directorial debut. In 2007 Chlotrudis co-presented Polley’s first directorial feature, AWAY FROM HER at the 5th IFFBoston.
STORIES WE TELL made a splash at the Toronto Film Festival, where it was described as “at heart a personal essay on the intractable subjects of truth and memory. Using a combination of archival footage, still photos and testimonials in a captivating visual assemblage, Polley examines the disagreements and varying narratives of a single family as they look back on decades-old events. The responses from the "storytellers" chosen to share their version of things are heartfelt, revealing and even charmingly funny. The result is a lively and richly textured documentary that seamlessly blends past and present, the real and the imagined”. STORIES WE TELL will be shown at 8:15pm at the Somerville Theater Screen 3, in the heart of Davis Square, on Sunday April 28th.
Celebrating its 11th year, the IFFBoston is the largest film festival in New England, bringing a far-reaching & varied roster of independent films & filmmakers together each spring to showcase the best to an ever-growing, appreciative Boston audience.
