Memory Lanes

International Stories

A short, slightly personal, slightly experimental, archival documentary about the history of bowling in America (or perhaps the history of America in bowling). The film interweaves our established perception of this innocuous all-American game with the pervasiveness of cultural racism, sexism, and violence by showcasing nearly 100 years of archival bowling footage from newsreels, instructional films, commercials, home movies, and mainstream films & television.
