It has become human nature to lie and we are all guilty of doing it! From scandalous headlines to little white lies, (Dis)Honesty – The Truth About Lies explores the complex impact dishonesty has on our lives and our society. The film features groundbreaking experiments from the celebrated behavioral economist Dan Ariely and personal excerpts from individuals affected by the unraveling of their lie. Ariely and a team of scientists uncover our tendency to be dishonest—sometimes even unknowingly. What’s revealed is a fascinating look at the forces behind our collective behavior and the many truths behind lies.
