What is All That Breathes on HBO about?
All That Breathes is a documentary that portrays the importance of coexistence between people and animals. Brothers Nadeem and Mohammad have set up a makeshift avian basement hospital to care for the rapidly declining bird of prey in their city, the black kite.
With increasing environmental toxicity and social unrest, the two work hard to do all they can to rescue the injured birds and help return them to the skies, per the synopsis. Their task is so important to them, as the animals are essential to the ecosystem in New Delhi, India.
The trailer gives us a look at the majestic birds, the brothers’ small but mighty set up, and a glimpse at the environmental pollution and social unrest that effects everyone’s environment. Check out the video below:
