Truth Or Tale

Truth or Tale is a 13 part documentary series that was created by Dianne Ouellette and Jason Britski. The series showcases the stories, legends, myths, and tall tales of Canadian prairie people. This series not only celebrates these people’s stories, but it also lets the viewer examine what separates fact from fiction in the oral tradition. This is a series that focuses on our prairie region – it’s natural beauty, it’s incredibly diverse and delightful people, and the stories they have to tell. Truth or Tale was the recipient of a Tourism Saskatchewan award for Creative Excellence, and won a  Gold Lone Star Remi Award for Best Cultural Film & Video Production at the Worldfest Houston Film Festival in 2008.

The series was created by Dianne Ouellette and Jason Britski, and was broadcast on SCN.

Truth or Tale was produced with the financial participation of Saskatchewan Communications Network (SCN), Canadian Television Fund (CTF-LFP), SaskFilm, Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit, and the Saskatchewan Film Employment Tax Credit.

For each episode the artist is filmed creating art in a unique, often remote natural location.
