White Lie

True North | True North

A skilful dancer seemingly born for the stage, Katie (Vancouver’s own Kacey Rohl, mesmerizing) proves equally agile in perpetuating an elaborate charade that has everyone - including legions of crowdfunders - convinced that she’s bravely battling cancer. She’s already been branded a local hero and immortalized as a hashtag but now a lucrative bursary demands that she present authentic medical records confirming her diagnosis. Consequently, her house of cards begins to teeter precariously as she races to secure forged documents. Additionally impeding her machinations are her girlfriend’s (Amber Anderson) insistence on constantly being at her side and her father’s (Martin Donovan) threats to publicly out her as a fraud.

As Katie nimbly evades the truth, directors Yonah Lewis and Calvin Thomas (Spice It Up, VIFF 18) deftly choreograph a succession of stunning scenes that call on pitch-perfect performances and formal precision to escalate the stakes to heights that are as exhilarating as they are dizzying.

"[Lewis and Thomas] deliver another incisive psychological drama… It’s a character piece that plays like a thriller…" - Norman Wilner, NOW
