All that Breathes Tops IDA Award Winners

Doc lands four wins including Best Feature

5 mins read

All that Breathes tops the winners of the 2022 International Documentary Association’s IDA Awards. All that Breathes won four awards including Best Documentary Feature and Best Director. The film directed by Shaunak Sen observes two brothers in a New Delhi bird clinic and the larger social forces echoed in their work. It  previously won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and the Œil d’or at Cannes — the first film to do so.

Other winners included Fire of Love, which scored two awards including Best Cinematography. The win marked a posthumous honour for the film’s subjects, Maurice and Katia Krafft, whose spectacular footage of volcanic research fuels Sara Dosa’s all-archival ode to the passions that fuel us.

On the Canadian front, Stolen: Surviving St. Michael’s won Best Multi-Part Audio Documentary or Series. The doc hosted by Connie Walker uses a chance encounter by her father as a starting point to investigate Canada’s violent residential school system.
