All That Breathes director Shaunak Sen talked openly about his emotions following his Oscar loss. His movie received a nomination for Best Documentary Feature Film.
For the first time since his movie All That Breathes lost to Daniel Roher’s Navalny at the 95th Academy Awards, director Shaunak Sen commented on Instagram. It was nominated in the Best Documentary Feature Film category. More than a day after the Oscars, the director posted pictures from the ceremony and in one of them, he even flashed the letter ‘L’ on his forehead as a sign of his defeat.
Next, we’ll put in a lot of effort to figure out how to distribute the show in India (HBO looks to have terminated its contract with Hotstar in India, so we’re deciding which platform it’ll air on right now). For the time being, it is wonderful to have the brothers and so many other members of our crew to enjoy this strange, bloated day with. The biggest congratulations to all the winning Indian films, he continued.
Mohammad Saud and Nadeem Shehzad, two brothers who operate out of a filthy Delhi basement, are the focus of the story. Black kites and other birds straining to breathe in the city’s filthy air are rescued and treated. Even though India didn’t win an Oscar in 2023, it did win the prestigious prize in two separate categories. Naatu Naatu, a song from the RRR movie, received the Oscar for Best Original Song. The Elephant Whisperers, a short documentary film by Guneet Monga, was named best.
