Sarah Polley explores her family history, and the idea of memory.

Stories We Tell makes “documentary” seem the most limiting of labels. Sarah Polley’s brave quest to uncover her family’s deepest secrets unfolds like a thriller, one where the resolution is literally part of her DNA. It’s an intimate story of truth, memory and reconciliation, not just for Polley and her family but also for astonished viewers.

Back by popular demand! "An important record of a significant figure in Canadian cycling." Top 10 at Hot Docs!

“Giuseppe Marinoni is a revered bicycle craftsman whose frames are highly admired and desired. When he’s not in his workshop, he’s likely feeding his chickens, tending his tomatoes or foraging for mushrooms. It’s clear this tailor turned cyclist is happy alone and sees no point in someone documenting his life.
