SCREENING | Sain uu?

A short film by Anouk Maupu before the screening of A night of knowing nothing by Payal Kapadia

Nomingerel, Egshiglen, Bayarjavkhlan and Enkhmaa are aged between 13 and 18 and live in Khatgal, a village in northern Mongolia. With their smartphones, they filmed their daily lives over several months and, through their teenage eyes, give us a portrait of a country undergoing rapid change. Directed remotely, this film questions our relationship with documentary practice, the dematerialization of human relations, collective work and the circulation of images.

A Night of Knowing Nothing

By Payal Kapadia

An award-winner in Cannes and Toronto, this debut film is a revelation and a cinematic gem. From her revolt in the face of rising extremism in India, young filmmaker Payal Kapadia weaves her web, a diary of poems, testimonies and stories against a backdrop of love letters. Edited on black and white images, this virtuosic collage, a tribute to the new wave and to justice, will undoubtedly prove a landmark ode to Indian youth and its freedom.
