YSFF17 Alumni Screening: Dis(Honesty): The Truth About Lies

Join us for a screening of a Yale alumna film! (Dis)Honesty:The Truth About Lies is a documentary feature film that explores the human tendency to be dishonest.The film is anchored in behavioral experiments that measure our propensity to lie – sometimes even unknowingly.  Inspired by the work of behavioral economist, Dan Ariely, the film interweaves personal stories, expert opinions, behavioral experiments, and archival footage to reveal how and why people lie.

“Captivating! Splendidly entertaining and razor-sharp smart.”
