Kultur13287 In Whose Name is a short documentary by Nandini Sikand for which I was the editor. It has won the Best Documentary Short award at Tupelo Film Festival in Mississipi. It will also be screened at the Asian American Film Festival in New York on July 19th at 6:30 pm.

In Whose Name? (2004, 12:00) is a filmic essay inspired by a changing political landscape. It explores the co-opting of icons by right-wing and national agendas. Filmed in India and the UK, this experimental short is told through personal narrative, Super 8mm home movies, Bollywood film and comic book art, creating an evocative pastiche of symbols and imagery.
