The truth is… we are all liars. Scientists say that by the age of four we have all learned to lie. We lie to protect ourselves and others, and to get what we want and need.  Featuring the latest science, psychology, and technology, this myth-busting and entertaining documentary called The Truth About Liars reveals that the only “truth” we know about lying is that everyone does it, and we can’t easily detect it.

 

 

In the Media

"An excellent and enlightening doc about deception.” – John Doyle, The Globe and Mail
"The Truth About Liars does a nice job of straddling the line between education and entertainment, offering a mix of scientific explanation and pop-culture references that puts the whole issue of truth versus deception into a pleasantly unnerving context". – Brad Oswald, The Winnipeg Free Press
