Co-Presentation with TIFF Cinematheque: A Night of Knowing Nothing

July 24, 2022

TIFF Cinematheque and Images Festival presents A Night of Knowing Nothing.


One of 2021’s most electrifying debuts — and winner of both an Amplify Voices Award at TIFF and the Best Documentary award at Cannes — 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. Structured around letters discovered on a film-school campus from an unseen protagonist, L, directed to her estranged lover, K, Kapadia’s film is at once grand and contained, weaving fragments of a romance and moments of domestic life with handheld documentary footage captured around the country over several years.


Limited run at the TIFF Bell Lightbox - August 11-17th.
