About:
Istanbul through the eyes of its colorful street cats.

Torun, a Turkish filmmaker now based in the US, returns to her hometown of Istanbul to capture the city from seven distinct feline perspectives, including mama cat Bengü, “jealous housewife” Psikopat, foodie Duman, and hustler Sari. Following this coterie – a small sampling of the city’s hundreds of thousands of strays – through the streets as they interact with their chosen human associates, the filmmaker crafts an infectious portrait full of charm and sweetness, at once a love letter to the regal animal and to the city itself. Interviews with admirers, and, most especially, magnificent tracking shots of the cats on the move, reveal the respect these creatures are afforded and the elegant manner in which they fit within the fabric of the ancient city.
