These Birds Walk, a documentary directed by Bassam Tariq and Omar Mullick, premiered at SXSW 2013 in Austin, after the filmmakers completed the film with Nice Shoes colorist Chris Ryan. The film is an inspirational story of resilience, documenting the struggles of street children in Karachi, Pakistan, as well as those who try to help them.

After a few stylized explorations, the filmmakers and Ryan decided to take the color in a natural direction, focusing on bringing out the beautiful moments of the film, and accentuating the theme of hopefulness.
