The Movie Teller

Milwaukee Film Festival

As the “movie teller” a young girl regales the people of her poor, desert mining town with her uncanny ability to recount the pictures she's seen in the cinema. She transports her audience to the new, exotic, and epic worlds she discovers onscreen, allowing them to escape their daily lives. This inspirational drama directed by Lone Scherfig and starring Berenice Bejo is a celebration of the power of storytelling, even in the harshest of circumstances.
