The Private Life of a Cat

This is a rather old documentary short that might be better described as an experimental film. It was released in 1944 after creators Alexander Hammid and Maya Deren completed this intimate study of the feline life cycle. The Private Life of a Cat follows a female cat and her litter of kittens. It also shows the process of maturation.

The Private Life of a Cat is shot exclusively from a cat’s eye level. It is also a silent film and was shot on black-and-white film. The coolest thing about this documentary is that it does not feature a single human. Instead, the female cat gives birth to and raises her litter entirely on her own (as it would be in nature). This film was also quite well-received by the documentary ratings company Top Documentary Films, who called it “beautifully photographed and executed”.
