KEDI is not a documentary about house cats or the strays you occasionally see in your back yard. KEDI is a film about the hundreds of thousands of cats who have roamed the metropolis of Istanbul freely for thousands of years, wandering in and out of people’s lives, impacting them in ways only an animal who lives between the worlds of the wild and the tamed can.
