Director Andrew Shapter spent years making the new documentary, The Teller and the Truth (out today on VOD and digital outlets), which relates the story of a Texas bank teller named Francis Wetherbee who disappeared after a robbery in 1974.

Or did she?

Well, Shapter certainly spent the majority of a decade bringing Wetherbee’s story to the screen, and The Teller and the Truth certainly looks like a documentary, complete with vintage footage, talking heads, and recreations. However, the film is not historical fact but rather an elaborately-created fiction, albeit one partly inspired by a real event.

The Teller and the Truth is currently playing at Cinema Village in New York and at Laemmle’s Music Hall 3 in Los Angeles. You can see film’s trailer and a clip from the movie, above.
