However, India still stands a chance in the Best Documentary category as Shaunak Sen’s All That Breathes is shortlisted among the last five nominees in the category. The Shaunak Sen-directed documentary will compete against All the Beauty and the Bloodshed, Moonage Daydream, Fire of Love and Navalny.

The Delhi-based documentary follows two siblings, Mohammad Saud and Nadeem Shehzad, who have devoted their lives to rescuing and treating injured birds, especially black kites.
