The word SINEKDOKS /si-nɛk-dɑks/ is coined from three Indonesian words—sinema (cinema), sinekdoke (synecdoche), and paradoks (paradox). When I coined the word, I’m thinking of cinema as a paradoxical vault that enables me to see a part as a whole, vice versa – over and over, again and again.

About Paskalis Damar

Paskalis is an English Education graduate from Sanata Dharma University, a former language instructor (teaching both English and Bahasa Indonesia), and a digital marketing enthusiast. His first blogging experience was on Friendster back in 2006. He then continued blogging since 2009— jumping sporadically between platforms with various themes and contents. He started blogging about films in 2013 and established a movie blog that would eventually become SINEKDOKS. In the beginning, SINEKDOKS was a form of writing exercise during his struggle in completing his final paper in college; but, it has grown exponentially ever since.

In 2016, he won ‘Kritik Film Terpilih’ award in Piala Maya for his write-up on Joko Anwar’s A Copy of My Mind. He received a nomination for the same award albeit now titled ‘Blog/Vlog Review Film Terpilih’ in 2017.

PASKALIS DAMAR sees films just the way they are—to impress, to entertain, to awe-inspire you name it. There’s no intention to influence anyone, save anyone’s pocket, let alone save the industry.

  1. Dear Paskalis Damar,

    Perkenalkan nama saya Albert Kusuma, saya dan rekan saya berencana untuk membuat sebuah acara nonton bareng yang disponsori oleh Sundance. Acara nonton bareng ini diharapkan diikuti oleh para blogger dan kebetulan setelah saya browsing di internet nama Paskalis Damar muncul. Boleh saya minta advice ? Atau boleh sharing nomor teleponnya?

    Thanks & regards,
    Albert Kusuma
