This documentary is for everyone who has ever lied or been lied to. So, everyone. In "(Dis)Honesty – The Truth About Lies," behavioral economist Dan Ariely takes a look at the complex ways lies both big and small influence our lives and shape the world around us. In particular, it focuses on individuals whose lives are based in part or in whole on lies, and what happens when those lies are revealed. Director Yael Melamede said of working on the project, "[it] has helped me better understand the road to dishonesty, cheating and corruption – and how winding, slippery and dangerous it can be."
The film will have its US premiere at Full Frame, followed by Hot Docs and Montclair. Said Ariely of the timing, "Is there a better time to introduce a movie on dishonesty than in a month that has both April Fool’s day and Tax Day?"
