Every January the skies over Ahmedabad become an extraordinarily spectacle as millions of vibrantly colourful paper kites fly in the heated battles of the world’s biggest kite festival.

PATANG, Habicht’s first feature project, is a rare and cinematic appreciation of an ancient and enduring craft and the sublime beauty of creativity that transcends the specifics of any one culture.

In 2022 Clemens began a creative collaboration with the kite craftsmen of India.
