Sundance Grand Prize winner and Emmy® nominee, director Jennifer Fox has had great success with her powerful film The Tale. After a very special and moving invite-only screening in Johannesburg on Monday 16 July and debuting at the Durban International Film Festival, the film received rave reviews. 

The Tale is written and directed by Jennifer Fox and is based on her own true story. It chronicles one woman’s powerful investigation into her own childhood memories, as she is forced to re-examine her first sexual experience – and the stories we tell ourselves in order to survive.

Due to the importance of the subject matter, M-Net Movies Premiere decided that it would be ideal to screen this film on its channel during the Women’s Month celebrations.

To see this pertinent and poignant HBO film, The Tale, tune in to M-Net Movies Premiere channel 104 on Monday 6 August at 22:00.

“You'll struggle to find a film that's more difficult to watch, yet more important to get through, than director Jennifer Fox's powerful autobiographical tale”– Sunday Times.

“Based on Fox’s own life story, The Tale sees the filmmaker bravely pushing forward the boundaries of conventional storytelling, creating a dialogue between past and present to illustrate the interplay between memory and trauma.” – Screen Africa.

“An unflinching look at her own childhood abuse and the complexity of her relationship with the perpetrators, Fox's film has received widespread international acclaim.” - Saturday Star, Canvas Life.

“Jennifer Fox’s powerful "fictional memoir", about the sexual and psychological abuse of a 13-year-old girl, is a timely addition to the #MeToo global campaign”.  - Art Smart
