WE ALWAYS LIE TO STRANGERS is a documentary film by David Wilson.
The movie follows the families of four performers living and working in Branson, Missouri. Wilson says it took five years to put the film together.
Though he is from Missouri and has been to Branson before, Wilson says he didn’t know much about the town and had assumptions and stereotypes that weren’t correct.
He says the filmmakers’ goal was always to give every audience something that surprised them.
"No matter who sees the film, whether you are from Branson or Omaha or New York, something you thought you knew or some expression of Branson will surprise you. The film has a whole gamut of emotions, from laughter to tears. It’s really an epic film set in the weirdest town in America.”
WE ALWAYS LIE TO STRANGERS screens at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 7th at Film Stream’s Ruth Sokolof Theatre.
There will be a Q&A session afterward with Wilson in attendance.
