"Maybe the most beautifully realized documentary in recent memory."—Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times

"A subtle, haunting reflection on the meaning of humanity — on the breathtaking kindness and heartbreaking cruelty that define our wounded, intrepid, predatory species."—A.O. Scott, New York Times

"Certainly beautiful aesthetically, but its gentleness towards the audience makes it even more beautiful."—Dan Bayer, Awards Watch

In one of the world's most populated cities, cows, rats, monkeys, frogs, and hogs jostle cheek-by-jowl with people. Here, two brothers fall in love with a bird -- the black kite. From their makeshift bird hospital in their tiny basement, the "kite brothers" care for thousands of these mesmeric creatures that drop daily from New Delhi's smog-choked skies. As environmental toxicity and civil unrest escalate, the relationship between this Muslim family and the neglected kite forms a poetic chronicle of the city's collapsing ecology and rising social tensions.alluring edge
