The Private Life Of A Cat - Silent Film Circa 1944

 The Private Life Of A Cat was directed by avant-garde filmmaker Alexander Hammid in 1947. (Update: We discovered the film was released in 1944). Originally a silent film, I’ve added some music by Korla Pandit, Philippe Besombes and Jean-Louis Rizet.

The film was shot in the apartment that Hammid shared with his wife filmmaker Maya Deren on Morton street in Manhattan.

Part narrative, part documentary, the story is simple and yet deeply expressive.
