A Night of Knowing Nothing

A Night of Knowing Nothing
dir. Payal Kapadia/India, France/2021/97 min.
Gdyńskie Centrum Filmowe, sala Goplana

The film begins with a found object: a box of newspaper clippings and letters from a film student to her forbidden lover. They met each other while they stood side by side in student protests against the growing influence of right-wing policies at the university. Yet he didn’t stand up to his own parents when they forbade him from seeing her again. Her pain, dreams, experiences, and observations about the changing political climate reflect those of many students in India today.
