The cat-umentary we have all been waiting for, this irresistibly charming film chronicles the fortunes of the beloved street cats of Istanbul. In Turkish culture caring for these animals is a cultural and religious obligation, and it’s estimated that in the capital there are as many cats as citizens. This beautifully crafted and crafty film has asides on a relationship more symbiotic than it first appears and reveals as much about the human animals of Istanbul as it does about the felines of this ancient city.
Suitable for all ages. In Turkish with English subtitles.
