Film "Stories We Tell" a film by Sarah Polley 2013-01-28 19:00:00



Canada, 2012, 109 minutes; PG


When actor-turned-director Sarah Polley was a teenager, her siblings joked about how little she looked like her father, English-born writer Michael Polley. Her beautiful, charismatic mother, Diane, had died a few years before that, and the burr stayed under her saddle until she began a more thorough investigation of her extended family’s puzzling secrets.

The result is Stories We Tell, a kaleidoscopic look at what goes into one family’s autobiography. She interviewed virtually everyone who was or is involved in the saga, including her many siblings, who come across as a likable, truth-prone bunch. The superbly crafted film is nicely framed by a recording session, shot by Polley, with her dad reading his dryly written recollection of the times.

This is fleshed out by home movies, archival footage, and deftly interwoven re-creations, adding to the mystery as much as they explicate it….Misbehaviour, especially as it was viewed in the Toronto of the 1960s and ’70s, is a central topic.  –Georgia Straight

Refreshments and Networking to follow

Jonathan Bengtson, appointed University Librarian effective January 1, 2012, trained as a medievalist at Oxford and has been director of academic and special libraries in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom.

At the University of Toronto where he was Director of Library and Archives at the University of St. Michael’s College and the Director of Library and Archives at the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies, Bengtson engaged with the transformations to research, teaching and learning brought on by the digital revolution.

He believes that specialized collections – such as those contained in archival and special collections are what make libraries unique and is looking forward to expanding these collections for students, faculty and community researchers.

In his spare time, he enjoys being outdoors, camping, kayaking, playing Ultimate Frisbee, squash, racquetball and beach volleyball. He also likes to travel, is the father of two young children, and is married to a librarian who he met at University College London when they were both working on their master’s of library studies.
