Private Life of a Cat

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)

    Ah… but they were never available to Google reader before. I ask to my “webmaster” to let show the images in some readers.
