In-person screenings resume at the Maine International Film Festival, beginning July 9!
STRAY explores what it means to live as a being without status or security, following 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 joined us from her home in Hong Kong to chat about her film as part of our Cinema in Conversation series.
