Kedi, a soulful documentary following stray cats’ wandering in Istanbul, Turkey, profoundly illustrates the symbiosis between humans and animals. Director Ceyda Torun shoots from the cats' eye-level, following some of these principal characters as they live their lives. She also talks to the humans who share the cats' public space, under no illusion that the cats fully accept this. See the trailer HERE. https://www.kedifilm.com
