"“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 (insiders will
recognize Viktor Krauss) 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. Boynton’s other
daughter, Caitlin, makes a sly cameo here as an inverse-twin cat."
