In a long post on Twitter, Guneet praised both Shaunak and his documentary. In multiple threads, she wrote, “Dear Shaunak, it’s been such a pleasure learning from you! I love @allthatbreathes. In this last month, knowing you as a filmmaker has been an absolute honour. The world needs to see the brilliance of the cinema you create. Thank you for your contribution to Indian cinema and for reminding us of the beauty and importance of preserving our world.”
She further wrote, “All That Breathes will always boast of both Oscar and BAFTA nominations, while it has already won global accolades by winning at the Cannes Film Festival, Cinema Eye Honors Awards, American Society of Cinematographers USA, and Asia Pacific Screen Award.” Guneet was all praise for Shaunak as she wrote, “I would always put Shaunak Sen’s name as one of the most important filmmakers from India for the world to watch.”
Guneet concluded her appreciation with the message, “Yesterday’s Oscars may have passed, but the impact of ‘All That Breathes’ and its visionary director will continue to inspire and touch hearts.”
Earlier today, netizens and even comedian Vir Das expressed their displeasure over All That Breathes missing out on the Oscar. But Guneet’s appreciation is must be some consolation for the young filmmaker.
