Membrane Lane

The experimental documentary Membrane Lane reveals how the False Memory Syndrome Foundation formed as part of a backlash against the progressive movements of the 1960’s and 70’s. Blind acceptance by many of the mythology of False Memory Syndrome grossly underscores America’s culture of denial, fueled by a dangerous fiction that it is exceptional among nations. 
This belief of American exceptionalism keeps us from acknowledging and confronting the destructive aspects of our culture and society, whether it’s our excessive consumption, denial of our racist and violent history or social problems like child abuse.
On another level, Membrane Lane is about staring into the abyss for too long, or losing oneself in the fight against perceived injustice.
