An essential part of the cityscape, these cats claim no owners, yet they have an intricate and deeply felt relationship with the people who intersect with their lives on a daily basis. Shot in amongst the seaside cafes, homes, bustling markets and quiet laneways, Kedi (which means cat in Turkish) introduces viewers to some of the city’s most charismatic residents, including the aristocratic gentleman Duman who lives near an upmarket deli and Deniz, the energetic social butterfly who loves to cause trouble and keep the humans of Feriköy Organic Market on their toes. As the camera traverses the city, each new cat offers a window into the ebb and flow of this ancient metropolis.

Ceyda Torun’s charming debut offers a magical insight into her hometown, unpacking the history of the city and its complex future, in the face of modernisation and radical urbanisation.
