The Fiona Project is proud to present a free public screening of Emmy nominated HBO film, THE TALE, followed by a group discussion. Explicitly and boldly told from a woman and girl’s point of view, the film speaks of survival and healing, not victimhood or hopelessness, and offers a dramatic arc of adult transformation. Watch the trailer
Revisiting a short story she wrote at thirteen, a documentary filmmaker (Laura Dern) faces life altering questions about her first sexual experience and the elusive nature of memory. THE TALE is director Jennifer Fox’s personal memoir examining the journey from denial to truth and the stories we tell ourselves to survive. Learn more about the film at TheTaleMovie.com.
THE TALE stars two-time Academy Award® nominee and Emmy Award® winner Laura Dern, Academy Award® winners Ellen Burstyn and Common; and is written and directed by Sundance Grand Prize Winner and Emmy nominated director Jennifer Fox.
“The Tale is lit up by a clarifying anger, but it has a stirring, inspiring streak—it’s about mastering a story by finding the right way to tell it.” The New Yorker
“[The Tale] shows that finding the truth of any story is finding the strength to see it clearly.” Variety
