A Cold Summer NightIndia, 2018, 21 min, Colour
21st May 2017, Mapusa-Goa, India. An ordinary night starts to turn wildly dramatic for Ketan, a Maharashtrian migrant, when an anonymous attack on his car congregates excessive attention in the Conformist Goan neighbourhood. Dreadful coldness knocks when the entire locality is calling out to Ketan and he’s stuck with his paramour in his small rented room while his pregnant wife is away at her parents house.
