Kedi 

When: Sat., Aug. 26 2017
Stray cats have lived in Istanbul for thousands of years, nearly as long as the city has been standing. The new documentary Kedi offers a gallery-style view of the cats inhabiting Istanbul while citizens offer their thoughts and feelings about the animals in their respective communities. The film shows how the cats live on a day-to-day basis and posits that, despite their stray nature, they have essentially become citizens of Istanbul.  It doesn't have one dominant story to tell, making Kedi closer to an observational nature documentary than a standard narrative documentary. The film is at its best when it allows the audience to focus on a particular cat for a length of time, like the hardened fish thief called "Psychopath" or the rough-and-tumble cafe cat named "Carefree." Allowing the personalities of the cats to shine pushes the film into more than just animal photography. It shows tonight at 8:15 and tomorrow night at 8:25 at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $10, $7 for Cinematheque members and anyone under 25. (Johnny Cook)
