The Image Travels | B•LORE by BIC

Film by Narendra Shekhawat

The film begins as a quest to understand the phenomena behind the portrait of Shankar Nag, a popular cultural icon in Karnataka, on most autos in the city of Bangalore. As the filmmaker attempts to uncover Shankar Nag’s legacy, by interviewing auto drivers in the city, he learns about Sticker Ramu. The man referred to as Sticker Ramu is the person behind the creation of these stickers. Inspired by the image that travels the filmmaker looks for and finds Sticker Ramu. The film then organically evolves into an inquiry on Shankar Nag through an interview and informal engagements with Sticker Ramu in his shop in Bangalore.
