Forest Man: Jadav Payeng

Forest Man is the short film made by photographer Jitu Kalita to narrate the work that Jadav Payeng has carried out since 1979 in northeast India near the Brahmaputra River. Without help from anyone, Jadav Payeng started planting a forest on infertile land; it currently has an area of ​​approximately 550 hectares (El Bosque de Chapultepec in Mexico City has 678 and Central Park in New York 341).
