Additional Information: Best of the Summer 2017 New Jersey International Film Festival - Part 1 First Bloom – Tingting Liu (Nanjing, Jiang Su Province, China) This lovely animated film tells the story of the budding friendship between a servant and a princess in ancient China. 2017; 5 min. Co-sponsored by the Rutgers University Confucius Institute! Kedi – Ceyda Torun (Istanbul, Turkey) Hundreds of thousands of cats freely roam the streets of Istanbul, Turkey’s capital city. Wandering in and out of people’s lives, they are an essential part of the small neighborhoods that make up the daily life of the city. Claiming no owners, the cats of Istanbul live between two worlds, neither wild nor tame — and they bring joy and purpose to the caretakers who feed and look after them. Filmmaker Ceyda Torun presents endearing and intimate portraits of eight such cats and their caretakers. Closely following along, as the cats nimbly navigate their way through Istanbul’s streets, this tender-hearted documentary presents the city through the eyes of its most free-spirited citizens: its felines. In Turkish, subtitled. 2017; 80 min. Co-Sponsored by the Rutgers University Zimmerli Art Museum!
