Exclusive: Visit Branson In Clip From Documentary 'We Always Lie To Strangers'

"It's like Vegas if it were run by Ned Flanders," Bart Simpson once said about Branson, Missouri. And while that makes for a good joke, the truth is that Branson does have a rich musical history, and that gets explored in the forthcoming documentary, "We Always Lie To Strangers."

We Always Lie To Strangers

"It's like Vegas if it were run by Ned Flanders," Bart Simpson once said about Branson, Missouri. And while that makes for a good joke, the truth is that Branson does have a rich musical history, and that gets explored in the forthcoming documentary, "We Always Lie To Strangers."

Directed by AJ Schnack and David Wilson, and premiering this past spring as part of the Documentary Feature Competition at SXSW, the film chronicles the unique Ozark town of 10,500 that pays host to 7.5 million tourists a year, with attractions that include over 100 musical stage shows. However, that doesn't mean just anyone can come in and set up shop. In this exclusive clip we see the kind of wholesome entertainment Branson has become known for, while a veteran reminds viewers that for all the success, many have failed when trying to establish their own hit spectacles.

"We Always Lie To Strangers" is now playing exclusively on iTunes and hits VOD and DVD on June 6th.
