Storyline

In the city of Istanbul, there are more than just human inhabitants. There are also the stray domestic cats of the city who live free but have complicated relationships with the people themselves. This film follows a selection of individual cats as they live their own lives in Istanbul with their own distinctive personalities. However, with this vibrant population, is the reality of an ancient metropolis changing with the times that may have less of a place for them. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

The Best Documentary To Date
6 March 2017 | by deannaderosaSee all my reviews

Beautiful, captivating, kind and gentle, Kedi, explores the bond between humans and the street cats of Istanbul. It's refreshing to see a creative documentary without politics or religion. Incredible cinematography and a creative plot. Kedi tugs at the heart and reminds us to be kind and loving while putting other creatures first. It's uplifting and original. A MUST see.
