Cats (“kedi”) have an exalted status in Turkish culture, and caring for them is both a social and religious obligation, if not a pleasure. Istanbul, one of the world’s oldest, largest, and most spectacular cities, is home to hundreds of thousands of street cats that have freely roamed since before the Ottoman Empire, despite their increasingly modernized urban environment. Torun’s splendid film—employing keen observation, patience, and some impressive technical wizardry—captures the colours, textures, and grandeur of the city and its devoted cat guardians from a cats-eye view.
