A Night of Knowing Nothing
(A Night of Knowing Nothing)

by Payal KAPADIA


A student at the state Film and Television Institute of India writes to her absent lover, who is from a higher caste in Indian society. The disappointment of her love affair mingles with glimpses of her everyday life on campus, night-time parties, the students’ political demonstrations. As films project moving shadows and lights, her letters express a growing anxiety about an oppressive regime. A Night of Knowing Nothing chooses the path of poetic editing to confront reality. Like a torch cutting through the darkness, this first feature bears the stamp of night: a terrifying night of the mind in troubled times, a night full of imagination, a night of initiation to both fear and joy.
