Indian movie at Cannes serving major vibes

Cannes Film Festival is THE red carpet of international cinema, and guess what? This year, an Indian film called All We Imagine as Light is there competing for the top prize, the Palme d’Or! what? This is a HUGE deal because it’s the first Indian movie in like, forever (30 years!) to be there.  And guess what else? It’s directed by a woman, Payal Kapadia, who’s kind of a big deal herself.  Here’s the scoop on why this movie is, like, such a game-changer.

All the deets on the film

Imagine this: two nurses, Prabha and Anu, living their lives in busy Mumbai. They both have relationship drama going on, and it’s stressing them out. So, they decide to, like, ditch the city and take a road trip to a beach town. Sounds amazing, right? But wait, there’s more! The trip takes them to this magical forest where anything seems possible. Sounds kinda dreamy, right? This film is all about these two women finding their space, following their dreams, and maybe even figuring out a little bit about themselves along the way.

Meet the girl boss behind the camera

Payal Kapadia is the mastermind behind this whole thing.  She’s not new to the Cannes scene, though. Her documentary, A Night Of Knowing Nothing, won a big award there a few years back.  This time around, she’s going for the gold with her first feature film, All We Imagine as Light.  And let me tell you, people are raving about it already.  Not only is the story captivating, but the acting is getting major props too. The cast includes Kani Kusruti, Divya Prabha, Chhaya Kadam, and Hridhu Haroon.

Why this is a win for India

This movie is a huge win for Indian cinema.  It shows that Indian stories are making waves on the international stage.  Plus, it’s directed by a woman, which is pretty darn inspiring.  So, if you get the chance, definitely check out All We Imagine as Light.  You might just be surprised by how much you love it.
