Lying: It's something we all do, but how often, and why? Are certain kinds of lies for the public good, or do all lies contribute to a less honest culture, and more horrible breaches of trust?

These and other questions are explored in the new film "(Dis)Honesty: The Truth About Lies." The film is anchored by intellectual powerhouse Dan Ariely, author of "The Honest Truth About Dishonesty," and a professor at Duke University. Yael Melamede is the film's director, writer, and producer.

"(Dis)Honesty: The Truth About Lies" is currently in limited release. It will be available on video on demand on May 22, and a shorter version of the film will be broadcast on CNBC on May 28.
