In this experimental short film, the filmmaker shares how he lost his Indian name.

 

BACKGROUND: This is storytelling told through narration, images and text. In "Gik:skwod," the filmmaker made cuts according to his eye blinks. During his film studies at Syracuse University, he read an excerpt from Walter Murch's "In the Blink of an Eye: A Perspective on Film Editing." In the excerpt, Murch explains how we naturally edit what we see through our eye blinks. The filmmaker created "Gik:Skwod" by experimenting with Murch's editing concept.
