As a good cat lover and a person that shares an apartment with three cats, I have to make a contribution to Friday Cat Blogging. But don’t worry. I won’t post any pictures of my cats (Melanie, Rousseau and Truffaut), not today. My contribution is The Private Life of a Cat, a short documentary directed by Alexander Hammid and Maya Deren in 1944.
The silent film is an intimate study of a female cat and the birth and maturation of her five kittens. I found this “little” masterpiece available at Internet Archive while I was searching for Deren’s works. It’s a bit different of her other visual experiments, but it keeps her touch. You can watch it at Google Video too (22 minutes)
