“Previewing Payal Kapadia’s ‘All We Imagine As Light’: A Story of Love and Loss”

Payal Kapadia's "All We Imagine As Light" Trailer Teases a Tale of Love and Loss Ahead of Cannes Premiere

In anticipation of the 77th Cannes Film Festival, where it will make its world debut, Payal Kapadia’s debut feature film “All We Imagine As Light” released its trailer, offering a glimpse into a poignant story of love and loss set in the bustling city of Mumbai.

The trailer introduces viewers to Nurse Prabha, portrayed by Kani Kusruti, whose life takes an unexpected turn when she receives a gift from her estranged husband, stirring up long-buried emotions. Alongside Prabha’s journey of self-discovery, the narrative delves into the blossoming romance of her younger roommate Anu, unfolding against the backdrop of Mumbai’s vibrant yet chaotic streets.

With a deft touch, the trailer weaves together these two distinct narratives, showcasing the raw emotions and struggles faced by its characters. “All We Imagine As Light” promises a deeply human exploration of love, loss, and the pursuit of happiness.

The film, a collaboration between India and France, boasts a talented cast including Divya Prabha, Chhaya Kadam, and Hridhu Haroon in pivotal roles. Kapadia’s venture into feature filmmaking marks a significant moment for Indian cinema, particularly at Cannes, where it competes among 19 other films for the prestigious Palme d’Or award.

It’s worth noting that it has been nearly three decades since an Indian film has vied for the Palme d’Or, with the last entry being Shaji N Karun’s “Swaham” in 1994. The legacy of Indian cinema at Cannes includes notable entries such as Chetan Anand’s “Neecha Nagar” (1946), V Shantaram’s “Amar Bhoopali” (1952), Satyajit Ray’s “Parash Pathar” (1958), and Mrinal Sen’s “Kharij” (1983), with “Neecha Nagar” standing as the sole Indian film to win the coveted Palme d’Or.
