About this submission

‘Blank Canyons’ is a story that is dear to my heart as the film is based on the life of my first cousin, who had to relocate from India to Arizona after being diagnosed with Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome. In many ways, it's a story that is shared by thousands of South Asian children who find themselves in an alien world in America; and through the film, I seek to portray the protagonist Arjun as a luminary, where kids around the world can be inspired by him to take the lead and move on from their pasts.
