Love Cat Videos? Kedi Is The Movie For You


As you're probably aware, the internet is made of cats.

And yet, aside from a pair disastrous vehicles for Sandy Duncan and Hallie Berry, cats are sadly underrepresented in feature films. That is about to change.

Tonight at the Malco Ridgeway, Indie Memphis is presenting Kedi, an epic documentary about seven feral cats who live in Istanbul. If you've ever had the misfortune to sit through Lil Bub & Friendz, you might not feel that a feature length cat documentary is in your best interest. Be assured, this is not like that. Indie Wire called Kedi "The Citizen Kane of the cat genre." Behold, this fancy feast of a trailer.

Preceeding Kedi is a short film by Memphis filmmaker and noted cat enthusiast Edward Valibus. Shot by Valibus and Kevin Brooks at Crosstown Arts, "Cat/Yoga" pretty much does what it says on the label. The first show have already sold out, but a second 9 PM show has been added, and you can purchase tickets at the Indie Memphis website.
