Pistachio & the Magic Cat of Istanbul

Posted by alkeme on Nov. 25, 2010

This is a story of Pinocchios cousin Pistachio and his quest for an encounter with a magic cat who will make his dreams come true. It is shot entirely in Istanbul and Bitez, Turkey and stars a feisty little marionette along with the personable citizens of the ancient City and its multitude of street felines. Algis, a veteran of the visual arts with a long history of photographic exhibitions in some of the best international venues (O.K.Harris in New York; Piramal Gallery in Mumbai, India), years as a photo-journalist (NOW in Toronto; The Gazette in Montreal), and several prize-winning short and feature lengths films (Mimetoliths; Master Class with Walter Lassally; Shapeshifter) variously shown in film festivals, television and the Web, brings years of experience, a finely tuned eye, and a child-like wonder to this new project. Charming Walter Lassally Oscar winning Cinematographer for Zorba the Greek.
