All of it is you.” So writes Bose in this experimental, bustling vision of London where beat-boxers are urban oracles, and ghosts of a multicultural city move through banks and brothels, kebab shops and squat parties. With dispatches from post-industrial Northern landscapes and from Bose’s hometowns of Mumbai and Kolkata, Digital Monsoon celebrates the dynamism of the urban edgeland with an invigorating rhythm.
