THE TRUTH makes movies for your ears. They're short stories that are sometimes dark, sometimes funny, and always intriguing. Every story is different, but they all take you to unexpected places using only sound. If you're new, some good starting places are: Silvia's Blood, That's Democracy, Moon Graffiti, Tape Delay, or whatever's most recent. Listening with headphones is encouraged!

Orson Welles would be proud

Amazing audio fiction and sound design. I absolutely love the writing and acting in this show. The stories are full of imagination akin to the Twilight zone. If you haven’t listened yet please do... it will transport you. Thank you staff of the The Truth.
