Quote:
"I think I like documentaries more than anything else, but I struggle with the ethical stuff, the manipulation and portraying people in a way that becomes permanent in the minds of people they don't know, having that kind of control over how people are perceived. In one way it was harder with this film [Stories We Tell] because it was my family, but also the stakes were also so high I could trust myself to be making ethical decisions."
-- Sarah Polley
