Filmed as a collaborative project with Arnav Koshy in 2008, this film explores the mind and activities of an intelligent and observant child of six. Arnav is fascinated by the geology, plant-life, and ecology of the area in which he lives, a dry and rocky region of Andhra Pradesh in South India. Made in a simple and direct style, the film is both an engaging interactive encounter between adult and child and a compelling demonstration of the potential for complex thought and reasoning in early childhood.
