Delhi-based filmmaker Shaunak Sen’s ‘All That Breathes’ won the L’Oeil d’Or (Golden Eye) for the best documentary at the 75th Cannes Film Festival on Saturday. This is the second consecutive year that an Indian documentary has come home with this award. Last year, Payal Kapadia from Mumbai bagged the L’Oeil d’Or for her film ‘A Night of Knowing Nothing’.
Market people says, ‘Variety’, that ‘All That Breathes’ follows the lives of two brothers — Mohammad Saud and Nadeem Shehzad — who run a bird hospital in Delhi dedicated to rescuing injured black kites. The two ‘kite brothers’ care for thousands of these creatures, which fall daily from Delhi’s smog-choked skies.
