AJ Schnack and David Wilson’s ‘We Always Lie to Strangers’ Trailer

Another trailer for another AJ Schnack documentary (this time co-directing with David Wilson) that’s also having its world premiere at another film festival (SXSW)! Very excited for this one.

“We Always Lie To Strangers” is a story of family, community, music and tradition set against the backdrop of Branson, Missouri, a remote Ozark Mountain town that is one of the biggest tourist destinations in the United States. Here, millions from around the country, and particularly from the American Midwest, flock for a return to “old fashioned, traditional values” and the family-style entertainment of Branson’s 100+ staged music shows, many of which feature families performing together. As Branson faces economic uncertainty and changes in attitudes on social issues, the interwoven sagas of these performing families form a composite both of Branson and of contemporary America.

‘We Always Lie to Strangers’ will have its world premiere at this year’s SXSW Film Festival. Click here for more info on where and when you can see it.
