FILM

On Sunday, December 18th, at 7pm at the Emerson Center, The Bozeman Doc Series presents the Montana premiere of the critically acclaimed new documentary, Kedi.

For thousands of years, street cats have played a unique role in the life of the city of Istanbul. Allowed to roam freely, and embraced as an essential part of the city’s social fabric, 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.

Combining gorgeous cinematography with surprising insight, Kedi is a fascinating look at life in one of the world’s ancient cities and the enduring bond between man and animal.

Since the film’s world premiere earlier this year in Istanbul, Kedi has won over audiences at prestigious festivals around the world and received widespread critical acclaim.

“A magical and remarkable documentary about the free-roaming feline population of Istanbul.splendidly graceful…a profoundly affecting meditation, at once dreamy and precise, on a force of nature surviving and thriving in an industrialized world.” Variety
