All that breathesShaunak Sen
Towering high above the overcrowded, noisy and hectic streets of New Delhi, a lone bird of prey soars through the sky. At first glance, the majestic black kite seems spared from the swirling bustle and ubiquitous pollution deep below him. But nothing could be further from the truth. He comes from the local sanctuary founded by two brothers. Their motto: all that breathes is equally important. Day and night, they care for the animals in their makeshift basement hospital in the middle of the megacity. This mesmerising chronicle of life that keeps finding its way in a city on the brink of collapse was the first film ever to win both the Best Documentary award at Cannes and at Sundance.
