In the Forest Again

  • India / 2003 / 115min
  • Original Title : Abar Arannye
  • Director : Goutam Ghose


In the 60s - in Satyajit Ray’s Days and Nights in the Forest - four city-bred young men had wandered into the jungles of Palamau for a vacation. In the new millennium, three of them decide to return to the forest on a trip down memory lane in Again in the Forest. One of the friends, however, has died while another is dying of cancer. And they are now accompanied by their spouses and children. Even the forest is different because Ray’s Palamau is now unsafe for tourists.
The three middle-aged protagonists try to relive the past. The only one who is forced to encounter the unknown is the one who is dying. Yet the unknown continues to intrude through their offspring. Their innocent holiday in a picturesque setting seems almost unreal. Till reality strikes in an unusual way.

How much time left before the festival starts?
