Kedi

Hundreds of thousands of Turkish cats roam the metropolis of Istanbul freely. For thousands of years they’ve wandered in and out of people’s lives, becoming an essential part of the communities that make the city so rich.

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.

In Istanbul, cats are the mirrors to the people, allowing them to reflect on their lives in ways nothing else could.

Critics and internet cats agree – this cat documentary will charm its way into your heart and home as you fall in love with the cats in Istanbul. This film is a sophisticated take on your typical cat video that will both dazzle and educate.

"Yes, Kedi is an unashamed love letter to the compelling creatures at its centre, but, peppered with wisdom and warmth, it's also more than just the ultimate cat video."

Sarah Ward, ArtsHub

"More than just another example of cute kittens on camera, Kedi bubbles over with charm and insight that millions of YouTube videos can't match."

Sarah Ward, Screen International

"A reminder that Istanbul can be a place of great warmth and solidarity even extended to street cats."

Louis Proyect, Counterpunch.org
