‘The Man Who 'Speaks' Nature’ Selected to Film Fest in Hungary

‘The Man Who 'Speaks' Nature’ - a film by Dhritiman Kakati and Raktim Hazarika, along with Prabal Bora as the production head, has been invited to be a part of the International Nature Film Festival Gödöllő, Hungary.

The Man Who ‘Speaks’ Nature is a short documentary film providing 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 documentary 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 the professional space of the determined naturalist.

It has been a mission of the International Nature Film Festival to raise the awareness of the public regarding the protection and conservation of biological diversity, natural resources, values and beauties of the world with a special emphasis on Europe and the Carpathian Basin through the display of films connected to the topic. The festival brings a good opportunity for filmmakers, professionals and the public to meet and initiate conversation on these important issues through different meetings and conferences within the framework of the event and to enjoy nature films at the same time. The festival will host its 5th edition this year from May 24 to 26, and the awards will be announced on May 25.

Last year, nearly 1,500 films and thousands of guests visited the festival from 104 countries.
