The Kiggins Theatre is one of a select number of locations across the country showing the remarkable documentary, Kedi, about the cats of Istanbul. Hundreds of thousands of Turkish 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, the cats of Istanbul 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.
Critics and internet cats agree—this cat documentary, which follows the lives of seven of Istanbul’s cats, each with a distinct personality and compelling story—will charm its way into your heart as you fall in love with the cats in Istanbul. You can see it at the Kiggins from Friday, March 17, through Wednesday, March 15. Click here for showtimes, ticket prices, or to purchase tickets online. For a teaser, check out the trailer below:
