Vacation Travels: Kedi

On Sunday, March 18, friend BG and I visited The Detroit Film Theater to view the documentary, "Kedi" which explores the interaction of cats and humans in Istanbul.

The theater is magnificent!

I am guessing that there are speakers behind this

The architecture is Beaux-Arts, Italianate style, so just sitting in the theatre was fun!  The movie is a delightful love-note to the cats who roam the streets, and interact with the people who love them, the stories shot as a montage of stories as told by fishermen, restaurateurs, shopkeepers; young and old, male and female.  There is nothing that would make you cringe, or hide behind your hands, although almost immediately my mind wondered why there was no TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) projects going on.  Maybe there are, but the filmmaker simply wanted to tell the stories of how the cats seem to bring out the best in the people of Istanbul.

Please make the effort to see this film; you will enjoy it!
