Delight at Robert St. (Finland/Canada)

Synopsis (English):
Buddy, an old stray cat from Toronto, had managed to conquer a small territory of his own in the center of the city. The filmmaker met Buddy’s gaze every time she went out, she befriended her neighbor and captured his last fall with her old 35mm hand cranked movie camera.

Synopsis (FI):
Vanha torontolainen kulkukissa Buddy oli onnistunut valloittamaan itselleen pienen oman reviirin kaupungin keskustasta. Elokuvantekijä kohtasi Buddyn katseen aina ulos lähtiessään, hän ystävystyi naapurinsa kanssa ja ikuisti vanhalla veivattavalla 35mm kamerallaan sen viimeisen syksyn.
