Oscilloscope Laboratories has acquired North American rights to Ceyda Torun’s documentary KEDi, about the thousands of cats that roam freely throughout Istanbul and have become an essential part of the communities they inhabit. Quote of the day so far from Oscilloscope’s Dan Berger: “I’m definitely more of a dog person than a cat person, but I’ll be damned if the subjects of KEDi didn’t just charm the sh*t out of me.” That was enough for O-Scope to cough up
a furball, cash, for the docu, which is now aiming for a 2017 theatrical release. Torun and Charlie Wuppermann produced via their Termite Films, and Thomas Podstawski executive produced.
