‘The Man who Speaks Nature’ Now Out on YouTube

The Man who Speaks Nature’, a film by Assamese filmmakers Dhritiman Kakati and Raktim Hazarika, along with Prabal Bora as the production head, is now out on YouTube for public viewing. 

The documentary provides a glimpse into the life and work of Manoj Gogoi, a conservationist based in Kaziranga, who has dedicated his life towards the rescue and rehabilitation of snakes and birds in particular. The movie also attempts to seek the reasons behind his plunge into conservation work and exhibits a peek into the daily work schedule of Gogoi that comes with being a self-styled naturalist known to have rescued and rehabilitated over 4000 species of flora and fauna. 

As Gogoi dwells on the reasons that motivated his work and how it has affected his personal life in the documentary, the film is an effort, therefore, towards showcasing, delicately, the elaborate view of the intersection of the personal and professional space of the determined naturalist.

The film has been screened in many prestigious film festivals. Earlier, ‘The Man Who Speaks Nature’ bagged the Best Film Award at the 5th International Nature Film Awards in Godollo, Hungary, which was held from May 23 to 27 this year. It was also awarded the ‘Second Best Film’ at Brahmaputra Valley Film Festival in 2018.
