Magnolia Pictures has acquired the North American rights to “Stray,” a documentary about the stray dogs of Istanbul, from London-based documentary distributor Dogwoof.
Marking Elizabeth Lo’s directorial debut, the film takes a canine’s-eye-view of the streets of Istanbul and follows three dogs — Zeytin, Nazar, and Kartel — as they roam free, offering a unique take on the Turkish city and its inhabitants.
The dogs’ lives ultimately intersect when they bond with a group of young Syrians who share the streets with them.
