Kedi
Kedi

Fri. 4/14 - Fri. 4/21

(Doc) 1 Hr. 19 Min. (Digital) In Turkish with English subtitles

Kedi is a profile of an ancient city and its unique people, as seen through the eyes of the most mysterious and beloved animal humans have ever known, the cat. 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. Street cats are such a big part of the culture that when Former U.S. President Barack Obama visited Istanbul, part of his tour included a stop at the Hagia Sophia to visit its famous cat, Gli.  Kedi is far more than a cat fancier's dream, it is a thoughtful, beautifully filmed, absorbing meditation for filmgoers of any purr-suasion.

(PG-13) 2 Hrs. 6 Min. (Digital) Biography, Drama, History

Starring two-time Academy Award nominee, Jessica Chastain, and Golden Globe nominee, Daniel Bruhl, The Zookeeper’s Wife—based on the best-selling book of the same name, which is in turn based on true life events—tells the story of Antonina and Jan Żabińska, who together managed Poland’s Warsaw Zoo during World War II. When Germany invades in 1939, bringing with it the new Reich, Jan and Antonina must come to terms with their new oppressive reality, all while balancing caring for their children and animal wards. But resistance is not futile, and Antonina and her husband find their own way to protect their family and community from the violence and hatred infiltrating their country.
