Location: Bartos Screening Room
Dir. Ceyda Torun. 80 mins. 2017. In Turkish with English subtitles. For thousands of years, cats have roamed freely around the city of Istanbul. Ever visible in the densely populous metropolis, they wander in and out of people’s lives. They belong to everyone and no one, neither fully wild nor tame. This beguiling documentary follows felines that live in sync with the citizens of Istanbul while also pursuing enigmatic journeys of their own. Recommended for ages 8+
“Remarkable. A splendidly graceful and quietly magical documentary.” —Variety
