I saw “CatCam” during SXSW last month and was totally charmed by the delightful 16 minutes of cat and tech and Herzog-eqsue laconic German cat owner. The documentary is about a cat owner who fashions a tiny camera for his cat to wear on his collar, and includes footage and images from the actual catcam.
The short film has been making the rounds on the festival circuit, and it’s now playing Tribeca Film Festival here in New York. Highly recommended if you like film, cats, people, fun, home electronic engineering, photography, and wonder.
