New Documentary Turns Japanese Cats Into Feline Film Stars

Passion project short film now shaping into full length epic thanks to overwhelming fan support

BRISBANE, Australia - Feb. 20, 2017 - EntSun -- Cat fanatics everywhere rejoice! A new documentary that takes viewers on a journey into the unique, often bizarre world of Japanese cat obsession is set to release at the end of April.

The film, Cat Nation: A Film About Japan's Crazy Cat Culture, is the latest documentary from filmmaker Tim Delmastro. The film explores the Japanese fascination with cats, from cat-scented hygiene products to cats with human jobs and everything in between.

"While travelling through Japan, everywhere I looked cats were being used in really odd and creative ways," says Tim.
The film stars British YouTube personality Chris Broad, who treks across Japan to document numerous unusual cat-centric activities such as cat themed cafes, bars, temples, and even entire cat islands.

The film, which is currently slated to be a short documentary, was fully funded in just 48 hours on popular crowd-funding website Kickstarter. With still almost a month left to receive additional funding, the project is edging closer to its $20,000 stretch goal, which will see it transform from a twenty-five minute short into a full-length feature documentary.

The project will be live on Kickstarter until the 18th of March. For more information, visit https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1959172116/cat-nation.
