A man is walking through the night's rain. You won't get to know his name. The only fact: He's a stranger. One, who doesn't belong to, where he has lived. One, who tries not to attract attention. One, who needs a place to sleep. He's looking for a room and a conversational partner; inside or outside of society. To talk a bit, and to stop for a moment, despite of the rain, that knocks you out.
*The night just before the forests* is a stream of words that opens up the view onto an unsettled world. This fathomless monologue travels through urban alienation, capitalist world, dysfunctional society and loneliness of a broken soul trying to be strong to hit hard against the society yet frail.
In collaboration with Alliance Française de Bombay.
