All That Breathes

In one of the world’s most polluted cities, two brothers devote their lives to a bird – the black kite. From the tiny basement of their family business, they rescue tens of thousands of these mesmeric creatures that drop daily from the thick grey skies, and dream of someday building a proper wildlife hospital. As environmental toxicity and civil unrest escalate in New Delhi, the bond between this Muslim family and the neglected kite forms a poignant chronicle of the city’s collapsing ecology and rising social tension.
...maybe the most beautifully realized documentary in recent memory.
