Meet the indomitable Zeytin, a stray who is treated with both disdain and mercy by the city’s human residents. Through the eyes of Zeytin and fellow strays Nazar and Kartal, we gain a unique and artfully-captured perspective of the lives and experiences of Istanbul’s residents and outsiders.

When Zeytin’s journey intersects with that of homeless Syrian teenagers, Stray transforms into a poignant exploration of the parallels between our four-legged friends and the marginalised humans they share the streets with. Lo observes the shared resilience and bond between the young men and their canine friends, subtly asking questions on how society treats the most vulnerable. With a singular vision you might associate with a veteran filmmaker, Elizabeth Lo’s stirring debut is both a dog and documentary lover’s dream. (BFI London Film Festival)

"Rivetingly confident in the devices she employs to build this sublime analysis of contemporary society, the director delivers a sharp, unique portrait of inflicted loneliness." — One Room with a View

Stray is screening as part of Antenna Selects, a curated selection of physical screenings and events, bringing Sydney audiences some of the best international documentary premieres right through to May 2021.
