This thoughtful, beautifully filmed look at Istanbul's street feline population offers absorbing viewing for filmgoers of any purr-suasion. A documentary of an ancient city and its unique people, seen through the eyes of the most mysterious and beloved animal humans have ever known, the cat.

More than just a cute cat video, this is a film that will nourish your soul.

“Kedi” is a remarkable film about the hundreds of thousands of cats who have roamed the metropolis of Istanbul freely for thousands of years, wandering in and out of people's lives, impacting them in ways only an animal who lives between the worlds of the wild and the tamed can. Cats and their kittens bring joy and purpose to those they choose, giving people an opportunity to reflect on life and their place in it. In Istanbul, cats are the mirrors to ourselves.
