I noticed there are no infos on the movie, and I don't know much about Ray himself, but I felt I should write something.
This short film is about a rich Indian kid who, upon seeing a kid in the garden in front of his house play a flute, immediately engages in a competition with him to see who owns the better toys.
It's a simple film with clear dramatic undertones and dealings of delicate themes, like greed, hate and separation. I'd love to give more info about it, but I am afraid I don't know enough about it to.
The film is shot in black and white on a small film camera. It's very raw, but conformist in its narrative structure.
