look up any word, like donkey punch:
The Rashomon effect is the effect of the subjectivity of perception on recollection, by which observers of an event are able to produce substantially different but equally plausible accounts of it

The word Rashomon was put into context after the movie "Rashomon" made in 1950.
lets not get all Rashomon on this.
