SPECIAL SCREENING: 15th of October (9 PM): Introduction by festival director for HUMAN International Film Festival, Ketil Magnussen.
Caste, class and religion regulate love in India but also hugely determine politics. L, a female student of the Film and Television Institute of India is writing letters to her secret lover who never answers them. Her letters not only convey her frustrations about him but also describe the growing Hindu nationalistic, repressive and volatile political climate students all around India are trying to fight. A Night of Knowing Nothing mixes dreams, fiction, memories, anxieties and fantasies into an hallucinant and nightmarish contemporary essay about the loss of innocence and an India that does not aim to be a fair, open and an inclusive society.
