Screening of 'All That Breathes' Followed by Discussion with the Director and Cast Members
Special IndOx Screening of BAFTA and Oscar nominated documentary film, All That Breathes, followed by a discussion with the Director Shaunak Sen (who will join via video-link) and key characters from the documentary, Nadeem Shehzad and Salik Rehman (who will attend in person).

In one of the world’s most populated cities, two brothers — Nadeem and Saud — devote their lives to the quixotic effort of protecting the black kite, a majestic bird of prey essential to the ecosystem of New Delhi that has been falling from the sky at alarming rates. Amid environmental toxicity and social unrest, the ‘kite brothers’ spend day and night caring for the creatures in their makeshift avian basement hospital. Director Shaunak Sen (Cities of Sleep) explores the connection between the kites and the Muslim brothers who help them return to the skies, offering a mesmerizing chronicle of inter-species coexistence.

Winner of the 2022 Sundance Grand Jury Prize – Documentary, Golden Eye at Cannes 2022, and Firebird at Hong Kong Film Festival 2022.
