Directed by: Payal Kapadia
Length: 96 min
One of the year's most electrifying debuts, Payal Kapadia’s hybrid feature A Night of Knowing Nothing is a fever dream of impossible love tied to a broader reflection on contemporary India. L, a university student in India, writes letters to her estranged lover, while he is away. Through these letters, we get a glimpse into the drastic changes taking place around her. A hypnotic essay about the loss of innocence and the spark that inspires one to fight that gains its strength by merging reality with fiction, dreams, memories, fantasies and anxieties. Winner of the The Golden Eye Documentary Prize at Cannes 2021.
