8 Episodes

Every cat is a born star. With their intriguingly enigmatic personalities, sleek grace, and bewitching eyes, they make for the perfect aesthetic subjects, as well as sphinx-like gateways through which we can contemplate the mysteries of our own existence. Bringing together lovably mischievous cats (THAT DARN CAT), magical Czechoslovak New Wave cats (THE CASSANDRA CAT), supernatural Japanese cats (KURONEKO, HOUSE), claws-out killer cats (CAT PEOPLE, SLEEPWALKERS), extraterrestrial cats (THE CAT FROM OUTER SPACE, THE CAT), and even a cat that owns a baseball team (RHUBARB), this salute to some of the screen’s most entrancing felines is purr cinema.
