Shaunak Sen’s “All That Breathes”, an audience favourite here from the outset, won the 2022L’Oeil d’Or(Golden Eye) for the best documentary at the 75th Cannes Film Festival on Saturday, making it two in succession for India.

“All That Breathes”is about two Delhi brothers Nadeem and Saud who, amid the city’s worsening air and deteriorating social fabric, devote their lives to saving migratory black kites that are at the mercy of mankind’s unthinking ways. The film was screened as part of the festival’s Special Screenings line-up.

The award was announced by a jury chaired by veteran Polish filmmaker Agnieszka Holland.

The citation read: “The 2022L’Oeil d’Orgoes to a film that, in a world of destruction, reminds us that every life matters, and every small action matters. You can grab your camera, you can save a bird, you can hunt for some moments of stealing beauty, it matters.” The citation described All That Breathes as “an inspirational journey in observation of three Don Quijotes who may not save the whole world but do save their world.” Sen’s win is India’s second in Cannes in two years. In 2021, Payal Kapadia’s“A Night of Knowing Nothing”, which played in the parallelSemaine de la Critique(Cannes Critics’ Week) took home the L’Oeil d’Or. “All That Breathes” was competing with ace Chilean documentarian Patricio Guzman’s“MyImaginary Country”, Ethan Coen’s“Jerry Lee Lewis: Trouble in Mind”and Sergei Loznitsa’s“The Natural History of Destruction”, among other films.

Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur on Saturday congratulated filmmaker Shaunak Sen for winning the 2022 L’Oeil d’Or (Golden Eye) for the best documentary at the 75th Cannes Film Festival.

“Congratulations to Indian filmmaker Shaunak Sen for the conferment of ‘L’Oeil d’Or’ award for his documentary ‘All That Breathes’ at Cannes Film Festival. I am sure, this will inspire other Indian documentary makers to make it big on the world stage,” he tweeted.
