After taking a hatchet to an early Western, Winchester '73, Raphael Montanez randomly spliced the bits to together to create this short film that deconstructs the Hollywood imaginary and in so doing implodes the narrative and representation of coding of Native and Latin American minorities in film. As critic Michael Sicinski has written, Cowboy and Indian Film "enacts what Scott MacDonald has called 'a physical attack on the cultural artifact' on the original film and its politics."
