Kicking Horse Culture will be starting the new year off with  Stories We Tell, which will be showing at the Golden Cinema on Jan. 17.

The film was directed by Oscar-nominated, Canadian actress/director Sarah Polley and is a personal documentary which looks into a family secret.

The movie centres around the discovery that her biological father was not actually the person she knew as her father.

After learning this fact Polley makes an effort to try and fully understand this long-held family secret.

In an effort to dive into this hidden story, the director heads out to interview every member of her family.

Polley becomes both the filmmaker and police officer in an investigation into her own life and never really knows where the next question will lead.

In the end the story heads deep into the rabbit’s hole to find out what it truly means to be a part of a family.

The nature of which is something that is always complicated, full of warmth and love. Stories We Tell is a deeply personal film about stories and how they define us both as a singular person but also as a group of people who make up those who are closest to us.

Stories We Tell screened at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival.
