"Lying is the most simple form of self-defense." - Susan Sontag
(Dis)Honesty - The Truth About Lies is a documentary feature film that explores the human tendency to be dishonest.
From plagiarism, to infidelity, to financial fraud, dishonesty seems to be a universal part of the world we live in. It's human nature to lie, we all do it! But little fibs can snowball into large-scale problems with major implications. The (Dis)Honesty Project explores the groundbreaking research of Israeli behavioral scientist and NY Times bestselling author Dan Ariely on the human tendency to lie, in an effort to create a safe space where we can explore the complicated truth(s) of the matter. The project initiatives include a documentary feature film written, directed and produced by Yael Melamede; The Truth Box, a traveling installation that invites people to share the truth about a lie; and an online forum to explore the issues surrounding (dis)honesty.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The OMJCC will present a screening of the film, Wednesday, March 22 at 7pm, and several opportunities to participate in The Truth Box, a traveling story booth that invites participants to share, on-camera, the truth about a lie they have told. Excerpts and stories recorded in The Truth Box will be shared on the project website [link to http://thedishonestyproject.com/truthbox/], social media, and for educational purposes.
ABOUT THE (DIS)HONESTY PROJECT
It's human nature to lie - we all do it. Dan Ariely's research shows that small, repeated reminders of ethical behaviors can help us act better. How does this relate to Jewish holidays and rituals like observing Shabbat on Yom Kippur? How is Judaism designed to help us behave honestly?
*The film is appropriate for kids age 12 and over.
