What does it means to live as a being without status or security? This profound new documentary follows three strays as they embark on inconspicuous journeys through Turkish society. Zeytin, fiercely independent, embarks on adventures through the city at night; Nazar, nurturing and protective, easily befriends the humans around her; while Kartal, a shy puppy living on the outskirts of a construction site, finds companions in the security guards who care for her. The strays’ disparate lives intersect when they each form intimate bonds with a group of young Syrians with whom they share the streets. Director Elizabeth Lo’s award-winning film is a critical observation of human civilization through the unfamiliar gaze of dogs and a sensory voyage into new ways of seeing. Subtitled. (73 mins)
“Stray, like Kedi (the documentary about feral cats in Istanbul) is a provocative essay about how we treat our fellow animals, human and non-human alike.” – Pat Mullen, POV Magazine
“Lo inspects both the fault lines and fringes of the Turkish society and ponders profound philosophical questions concerning humanity.” – Tomris Laffly, Variety
