Trailer for Ika (Feather), an award-winning Telugu short film by Raam Reddy.
Ika is a film about Rajesh, a boy living in a slum in Bangalore who wants to make a film. He doesn't have a camera; he builds a camera using a cardboard box and a magnifying glass, and sticks an old VHS tape onto the side of it. He then sets out with his friend, Prashant, searching for an idea for his film, telling Prashant that 'Whatever is in your mind will go into this tape.' Then, when they find that one of their friend's chickens has been chased off by a dog, they decide to make a detective film about searching for the chicken.
