Synopsis:
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. Cats and their kittens bring joy and purpose to those they choose, giving people an opportunity to reflect on life and their place in it. In Istanbul, cats are the mirrors to ourselves.

Reviews:
"Part wildlife documentary, part urban love letter. Kedi may only be a slender 79 minutes long, but it's a lyrical and surprising philosophical tribute to the therapeutic power of pets."
- Empire Magazine

"There's no more to it than that, but an attractive music score, incorporating several Turkish songs, makes for an engaging film that's easy on the eye and the ear - especially for cat and/or Istanbul lovers."
- David Stratton
