"Stories We Tell" Documentary at New Directors/New Films - Sold Out

  • Mar 29, 2013 · 6:15 PM

This is one of the boldest and most exciting films I’ve seen in the last six months, and the kind of experience that has the power to alter your perception of the world. - A.O. Scott, NY Times.

As of 3/17, tickets to this screening are sold-out. This is the first regular ND/NF screening at MoMA to sell-out. Meetup participants made this happen! If necessary, please update your RSVP status. Just in case more tickets are released, click here & see if anything materializes.

What is real? What is true? What do we remember, and how do we remember it? Actor/director Sarah Polley turns from fiction to nonfiction, in the process cracking open family secrets. Using home movies, still photographs, and interviews, Polley delves into the life of her mother, a creative yet secretive woman. But while she is talking to her own relatives, Polley’s interest lies in the bigger picture of what families hold onto as truth. Stories We Tell is a delicately crafted personal essay about memory, loss, and understanding. A Roadside Attractions release.

Director Sarah Polley will be in attendance. This scored an impressive 8.4 stars on Stories We Tell is scheduled for a limited release on May 17.

During dinner a pair of tickets to An Oversimplification of Her Beauty, from last year's ND/NF festival will be given away, courtesy of Variance Films. Opens 4/26 at Cinema Village.


The MoMA film entrance is a few doors east of the main entrance. Before the screening, look for me at the cinema in my Gap baseball cap and let me know if you're joining us for dinner at the New York Thai Grill on W 54th St.

Advance tickets to this screening have sold-out. If this impacts your status, please update your RSVP.

If you're not going to be there, your RSVP should say no. Participants are requested to be fully engaged in the meetup by refraining from all phone usage. (Now please don't ask for my cell number.)

Please drink responsibly.

Do not waste your time with the meetup check-in feature.

Here's the trailer for this year's New Directors/New Films festival.

    Another reminder, anyone without a ticket should set their RSVP to 'no," or be prepared to show up early for the standby line.

    never attended one of your meetups. Looking forward to it. Had just read about this film. Can't wait to see it. Do I need to have a MOMA membership?
