A profile of an ancient city Istanbul and its unique people, seen through the eyes of the most mysterious and beloved animal humans have ever known, the Cat

Hundreds  of  thousands  of  cats  roam  the  metropolis  of  Istanbul  freely. This is the story of seven of them!. For  thousands  of  years  they’ve wandered in and out of people’s lives, becoming an essential part of the communities  that make the city so rich. Claiming no owners, these animals live between two worlds, neither  wild  nor  tame and  they  bring  joy  and  purpose  to  those  people  they  choose  to  adopt.  In  Istanbul,  cats  are  the  mirrors  to  the  people,  allowing  them  to  reflect  on  their  lives  in  ways nothing else could' (Turkish w/English subtitles)

The mesmerizing score by Kira Fontana, interspersed with well-chosen Turkish pop, is a real asset.

"More than just a cat. The cat embodies the indescribable chaos,  the culture, and the uniqueness that is the essence of Istanbul.” - Director Y. Barlas
