Kedi Film Synopsis: Hundreds of thousands of cats roam the metropolis of Istanbul freely. For thousands of years they’ve wandered in and out of people’s lives, becoming an essential part of the communities that make the city so rich. Claiming no owners, these animals live between two worlds, neither wild nor tame – and they bring joy and purpose to those people they choose to adopt. In Istanbul, cats are the mirrors to the people, allowing them to reflect on their lives in ways nothing else could.
This event is part of Southwestern University’s Spring Family Day and is proudly sponsored by Cat Partners of Southwestern University with funding from the McMichael Fund Grant.
