GIK:SKWOD: How I lost My Indian Name
USA / 2:50 / 2019 / sound / colour & b/w / English
In this experimental short film, a Seneca filmmaker shares how he lost his Native American "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.
