KEDI
2016, Oscilloscope Films, 79 min, Turkey/USA, Dir: Ceyda Torun

Hundreds of thousands of Turkish cats roam the metropolis of Istanbul freely; for thousands of years they’ve been an essential part of the community. Claiming no owners, the cats of Istanbul live between two worlds, neither wild nor tame - and they bring joy and purpose to those people they choose to adopt. This charming documentary will make you think about our relationship to nature and each other, and will make you feel as if a feline friend just snuggled up beside you.
