Hot Docs Winter Getaway: Beat the winter blahs and escape to some of the world's most sunny and colourful destinations in this uplifting film series.
Make a feline friend in beautiful Istanbul!
For thousands of years, cats have lived alongside humans in Istanbul—occasionally as pets, but more often as independent fellow denizens of the ancient port city. Part wildlife film and part urban ethnography, Kedi explores the lives of seven street cats with sumptuous cat’s-eye-view cinematography. The captivating felines provide much appreciated pest control for the city of course, but their connection to the city and the people who live there goes far deeper than that. Claiming no owners, they live between two worlds and bring joy and purpose to those humans they choose to adopt.
