Delhi-based
filmmaker
Shaunak
Sen’s
documentary

All
That
Breathes

will
premiere
in
the
Special
Screening
segment
at
the
Cannes
Film
Festival
2022,
the
organisers
announced,
as
they
unveiled
the
official
line-up
of
the
movie
gala
on
April
14.
The
10-day
festival,
considered
one
of
the
most
prestigious
gatherings
of
cinema
talent
from
across
the
world,
will
also
see
Hollywood
spectacles
such
as

Top
Gun:
Maverick

and

Elvis
,
the
Elvis
Presley
biopic
its
75th

All
That
Breathes

by
Delhi-based
director
Sen
will
premiere
in
the
Special
Screening
segment
at
the
festival,
the
organisers
said
in
an
announcement
that
was
live
streamed
on
their
official
Twitter
page.

The
90-minute
long
documentary
follows
siblings
Mohammad
Saud
and
Nadeem
Shehzad,
who
have
devoted
their
lives
to
rescue
and
treat
injured
birds,
especially
the
Black
Kites.
Working
out
of
their
derelict
basement
in
Wazirabad,
the
Delhi
brothers
become
the
central
focus
of
the
film
and
their
story
zooms
out
to
document
a
larger
snapshot
of
the
city,
where
the
air
is
toxic
and
the
ground
is
on
a
slowburn
of
social
turmoil.

In
January
2022,
the
film
won
the
World
Cinema
Grand
Jury
Prize:
Documentary
at
the
Sundance
Film
Festival,
a
film
gala
that
promotes
independent
cinema
and
filmmakers.
It
is
Sen’s
second
directorial
after
the
acclaimed
2016

Cities
of
Sleep
,
which
was
about
the
homeless
scouting
for
places
to
sleep
in
the
capital.

There
is
no
Indian
film

the
Un
Certain
Regard

2022
but

Pakistan’s

written
and
directed
by

Sadiq,

The

previously
won
the
Orizzonti
Award
for
Best
Short
Film
for
Darling
at
