RECOLLECTIONS: A film about memory recall
Memory is subjective. Each time we remember an event, it becomes convoluted, to the point where we create a new reality. Memory recall can be especially complex in the gray area of date rape. Many women are confused as to if they could have prevented it, if it was their fault, or if it could even be considered rape if it was during a date. As a result, many women choose to ignore the reality of what happened, or even rewrite their memory all together. Recollections is a short film about memory, and what we choose to forget or deny.
