Yesterday, we got an email about this trailer, which is for an upcoming film called Kedi. The film, which takes its name from the Turkish word for cat, is a documentary about the myriad stray cats that live on the streets of Istanbul. Now, look, I will admit that I am the literal perfect audience for this film — I love cats and I love Istanbul — but even if you don’t fall into both (or either!) of those categories, Kedi may be of interest, because it looks like a gorgeous piece of work. Director Ceyda Torun mixes beautiful location shots with close-in footage of these fascinating animals going about their daily routines, capturing both the life of a city and the life of the creatures that share its streets with humans. The film is in theaters February 10th, 2017, and I can’t wait to see it.
