»Breathing« is an intimate documentary about life, death, love and the hope provided by cutting edge genetic science. It is also a film about how to be a good father ¿ when you're no longer there. An ambitious and moving film which tells the story of Neil Platt, a bright, energetic Yorkshireman who developed Motor Neurone Disease (ALS) and was driven to speak from a paralysed limbo land between life and death.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste. Se listen over prioriterede festivaler.
