Training on Story

Long Island City, NY -

For many of us, I suspect, our first sense of the past begins with the simple childhood request for a story about our families and ourselves. In her quietly moving, intelligent documentary “Stories We Tell,” the Canadian actress and director Sarah Polley sat down with relatives and friends and asked them to talk about her mother, Diane Polley, who died in 1990 when Ms. Polley was 11. The idea, or so it first seems, is that every fondly unearthed detail, anecdote and memory will fill in the biography of a woman whose seemingly ordinary life — of tending children, husband and home — contained multitudes and mysteries, and with tugging and shaping can be tidied into a story.
