In one of the world's most populated cities, two brothers — Nadeem and Saud — devote their lives to the quixotic effort of protecting black kites, majestic birds of prey essential to the ecosystem of New Delhi that have been falling from the sky at alarming rates. Amid environmental toxicity and social unrest, the "kite brothers" spend day and night caring for and rehabilitating the creatures in a makeshift avian hospital in their basement. In his second feature-length documentary, director Shaunak Sen (CITIES OF SLEEP) explores the connection between the kites and the Muslim brothers who help them return to the skies, offering a mesmerizing chronicle of inter-species coexistence. DIR/PROD Shaunak Sen; PROD Aman Mann, Teddy Leifer. India/U.S./UK, 2022, color, 94 min. In Hindi with English subtitles. NOT RATED
