Summary: Amar Kanwar’s film A Night of Prophecy was shot in several regions of India – Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Nagaland, Kashmir – and features music and poetry of tragedy and protest performed by regional artists. The sources of anger and sorrow vary from inescapable, caste-bound poverty to the loss of loved ones as a result of tribal and religious fighting. Kanwar asks “if different poetic narratives could merge together, allowing us to see a more universal language of symbols and meanings… would there be a moment of prophecy?” (Amar Kanwar).
