Winner of the Cannes Film Festival’s Golden Eye award for best documentary, All That Breathes chronicles the story of two brothers who form a makeshift bird hospital to care for the thousands of black kite—the species of bird they have both fallen in love with—that drop daily due to New Delhi’s heavily polluted skies. Through this specific story, the film paints an unflinching but tender portrait of the city—and of India in general, which has experienced political unrest since the country’s recent turn toward Hindu majoritarianism—as a fraught ecology in which humans, animals, and environments of various kinds are deeply interconnected.
