“I’m known for my grace and my curiosity…” Designed with the rich look and moody irony of a classic 1940’s Noir film, C. A. T. is a wry homage to classic movies, and a celebration of the infuriating glory of cats. An alluring and remote low-voiced woman (une chatte fatale, as it were) sings to us of her unmistakable feline nature. A shadowy upright-bass player is seen now and then, accompanying the cat’s slow and confident jazz song. Sandra Boynton wrote, designed, and directed this stylish and clever short film. It stars her daughter, Darcy, performing the track she sings on the 2017 Boynton/Ford record album, HOG WILD.
