Payal Kapadia

A Night of Knowing Nothing is Payal Kapadia’s first feature-length documentary. It was awarded as best documentary film at the Cannes Film Festival in summer 2021. Now, it takes part in DocPoint’s International Competition. The experimental film recounts a story of student life in an Indian university, as students protest against the caste system and the conservative government. The story is framed by a female film student’s letters to a previous boyfriend.
