The street cats of Istanbul


A new documentary about the cats of Istanbul is to be shown in UK cinemas.

Ceyda Torun’s film KEDi, which means feline in Turkish, follows the lives of 7 cats – Sari, Bengü, Aslan Parçasi, Psikopat, Deniz, Duman and Gamsiz – as they roam through the streets of Turkey’s biggest city. The film makers designed and developed innovative cat cameras and techniques to capture the lives of these unique characters whose backgrounds and stories are as varied as the humans surrounding them.

Variety magazine labelled the film “splendidly graceful and quietly magical” while the LA Times called it “remarkable”.

Watch the trailer:

KEDi will be released on 30 June 2017.
