Alliance Française de Bombay is excited to bring the 2nd edition of the crime fiction project — Noir in Mumbai to Mumbai on 27 October – 29 October 2023. After its successful launch in 2022, Noir in Mumbai: Urban Investigation Game will take place on 29 October, where participants will get to solve ‘The Mystery of the Hidden Bird’!
Designed as a literary investigation, the investigative game will introduce participants to iconic cultural spots in the city while solving the mystery of the hidden bird. The participants start at Alliance Francaise de Bombay, and move across iconic cultural spots, while picking up clues from each of the spots and trying to uncover the truth.
A one-of-a-kind urban investigation, conceptualized by Mumbai-based author and filmmaker, Piyush Jha. Participants will have 2 hours to unravel the mystery and stand a chance to win 2 Vistara return tickets to Paris!
The event is organised by Alliance Française de Bombay (AF Bombay) and the French Institute in India (IFI), in collaboration with Tata Literature Live! The project is inspired by the crime fiction festival — Quais du Polar that is organised every year in Lyon, France.
