Our memories are reconstructive. It's a little like a Wikipedia page, you can change it, but so can other people.

True Memories and Other Falsehoods (TMOF) examines the causes and implications of false memory and false internalized belief within the criminal justice system: a woman misidentifies her assailant, an investigator elicits a false confession, and a suspect becomes convinced he committed a crime that he did not commit. Informed by an understanding of the ways memory and belief become contaminated, investigative protocols are being enacted to reduce wrongful convictions.

TMOF is a feature-length documentary in development with Kartemquin Films.
