The Munich International Film Festival, Germany's second-largest after Berlin, boasts a rich history of showcasing global cinematic excellence. All We Imagine as Light will be competing against 13 other films, vying for the festival's top awards. This inclusion marks a significant moment for Indian cinema, not only because the film is Kapadia's debut, but also because it represents the first time an Indian film directed by a woman has been featured in the Cannes competition.

The Grand Prix win at Cannes has catapulted Kapadia into the international spotlight. The award was the second-highest honour bestowed by the festival.

According to a report in Deadline, the film All We Imagine As Light was shot over a period of 40 days, capturing the essence of late summer in Mumbai before transitioning to the rainy coastal town of Ratnagiri. The report further states that All We Imagine As Light is a French-Indian co-production, in collaboration with Paris-based producers Hakim and Julien Graff (Petit Chaos) and Zico Maitra of Mumbai's Chalk & Cheese Films.

As per the official Cannes website, the film, presented in both Malayalam and Hindi, follows the lives of Nurse Prabha's life in Mumbai which is disrupted by a surprise gift from her estranged husband. The unexpected gesture throws her routine into disarray. Sharing a cramped apartment with her younger roommate, Anu, tensions rise as Anu desperately searches for a private space to be with her boyfriend. The city offers no solace, forcing them to dream of escape. A weekend trip to a quieter beach town finally grants Anu the intimacy she craves. Freed from the constraints of Mumbai, their desires find a way to blossom under the open sky.

Payal Kapadia gained international recognition with her 2021 documentary A Night of Knowing Nothing, which premiered in the Director's Fortnight section at Cannes and went on to win the Golden Eye for best documentary.
