[personal profile] zlabya and I just saw the documentary film KEDI at my town theater. It is THE WISEST FILM EVER MADE!!!1!!

KEDI follows the lives of several stray cats of Istanbul and the thoroughly enlightened humans they associate with. My flistmates who live with furry nonhuman beings, especially the cat-owned, you MUST see this film, if you haven't already! The paid utube site in the link above lets you use the service for a month free, also check the list on that page and see if it's coming to a theater near you--the international page lists when it will be at some US film festivals as well.

Besides the joy of seeing the stories of humans who have reached enlightenment and the cats who guided them there, the cinematography is beautiful and the soundtrack is terrific.

Which leads me to a nitpick--I saw Wonder Woman a couple of weeks ago and really loved it, except why were there no cats on Themyscira? That made the whole film less believable to me. Discuss.

Hi! <3 I'm trying to find my way back to posting . . . .

It sounds like a lovely film but animal films make me very tense. I sit and wait for something bad to happen.
Great to see a post from you. (Hugs)

I'm so the same way with animal films. This film is pretty feel-good as far as I remember. I don't remember anything sad and I'm super sensitive to that. I think there was one baddish thing where a kitten was injured but he was taken to a vet and you never find out the outcome (so he could have recovered).

There are totally cats on Themiscyra. This is so obviously true they didn't bother showing us any. Or all the scenes with cats ended up being cut for other reasons. But Themiscyra totally has cats. It is, after all, Paradise Island.

When the DVD comes out, I hope there will be a whole mini-feature on the cats of Themiscyra.

I loved that film and reviewed it on here some time back! Beautiful scenes of Istanbul, too!
