The Private Life of a Cat

The Private Life of a Cat is a charming 1946 short film by Alexander Hammid. There was a longer (scrapped) sound version narrated by Hammid’s wife Maya Deren, an important figure in the history of experimental film, but this first twenty-two minute b&w silent version seems especially appealing given the clamor and commotion of our grotesque times. So, turn off the news for a while and enjoy the delightfully human-free, cat’s eye view of family life.
