Join Action Design, Boston for a free film screening of (Dis)Honesty – The Truth About Lies: a documentary feature film that explores the human tendency to be dishonest. Inspired by the work of behavioral economist, Dan Ariely, the film interweaves personal stories, expert opinions, behavioral experiments, and archival footage to reveal how and why people lie.

About Action Design, Boston:
Action Design Boston is a group of designers, developers, entrepreneurs, economists and others who are passionate about helping people create positive change in their lives. We sit at the intersection of technology (UI / UX, data science), psychology (behavioral economics, positive psychology), and advocacy, and we focus on exposing our members to cutting edge tools, research, and practitioners in each of these areas so they can apply the latest learning in action design in their respective fields.
Whether the goal is to help people save more money, get in shape, cut down on electricity usage, or learn a new language, the idea is the same: how can we use research in behavioral economics and psychology to help users build habits and change their daily behavior?
