Greystones Film Club: Stray

(USA 2021/G/72mins)
The award-winning documentary 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 – where there’s a No Kill, No Capture law towards all stray animals.
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 fascinating film is not only a critical observation of human civilization through the unfamiliar gaze of dogs and a sensory voyage into new ways of seeing but an ode to man’s best friend. Who will endure just about anything to share the love.
