Kedi –  Ceyda Torun (Istanbul, Turkey)

Hundreds of thousands of cats freely roam the streets of Istanbul, Turkey’s capital city.  Wandering in and out of people’s lives, they are an essential part of the small neighborhoods that make up the daily life of the city. Claiming no owners, the cats of Istanbul live between two worlds, neither wild nor tame — and they bring joy and purpose to the caretakers who feed and look after them. Filmmaker Ceyda Torun presents endearing and intimate portraits of eight such cats and their caretakers. Closely following along, as the cats nimbly navigate their way through Istanbul’s streets, this tender-hearted documentary presents the city through the eyes of its most free-spirited citizens: its felines.  In Turkish, subtitled. 2017; 80 min.
