Available from 8 February 2023 at 9pm exclusively on Sky Documentaries and streaming service NOW, All That Breathes - the first film ever to win the best documentary prize at both Sundance and Cannes - is now a BAFTA and Oscar® nominee.

As legions of birds fall from New Delhi's darkening skies, and the city smolders with social unrest, two brothers race to save a casualty of the turbulent times: the black kite, a majestic bird of prey essential to their city's ecosystem.

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.

Hailed as "one of the best movies of 2022" by the New York Times, All That Breathes premiered at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival and was selected as the Grand Jury Prize winner in the World Cinema Documentary Competition. In May of last year, it became the first film to win the Best Documentary prizes at both Sundance and Cannes, taking home the Golden Eye Award for Best Documentary at Cannes. The film was released theatrically by Submarine Deluxe and Sideshow and has gone on to win Best Documentary Feature at the Gotham Awards; four IDA Awards, including Best Documentary Feature; and two Cinema Eye Honors, including Outstanding Documentary Feature. All That Breathes is also nominated for Best Documentary at the Independent Spirit Awards and BAFTA Awards and is nominated by the DGA, PGA and ASC.
