Kedi

Documentary

Turkey/USA (sub-titled)
79 mins Documentary G

For millennia, cats have roamed the city of Istanbul. Granted freedom and respect, they wander in and out of people’s lives, an essential part of this rich and proud city. This is the story of seven of them.

Claiming no owners, they live between two worlds, neither wild nor tame. They bring joy and purpose to those they choose to adopt, acting as mirrors to the people of Istanbul and allowing them to reflect their lives in unique and touching ways. 

Observing the lives of seven very different cats and the people who know them, Kedi is an enlightening and heart-warming examination of one of our oldest animal companions and the ways they enrich our lives.
