Meet Zeytin (the Turkish word for ‘olive’) a stray dog living on the streets of Istanbul, in this deceptively simple documentary all about the dogs of Istanbul by Elizabeth Lo.

Bringing the camera to Zeytin’s level, we see the world through her eyes, her seemingly impossible world of navigating busy roads, finding food, a place to sleep, and building a community of fellow strays.

When Zeytin’s journey intersects with a trio of young, homeless Syrian refugees, Lo’s film transforms into a poignant look at those pushed to societies margins. Observing the resilience and tight bonds formed by both groups, this is a poignant, memorable journey, gently probing and thoroughly illuminating the economic, political, and cultural divisions between us.

"Human beings live artificially and hypocritically and would do well to study the dog.” – Diogenes the Cynic 360 B.C.
