Stray

May 27 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Location: Frost Amphitheater

Each week, Stanford Under the Stars: Movie Nights at Frost brings a selection of movies featuring actors who attended Stanford or various Stanford and Northern California filming locations.

Stray explores what it means to live as a being without status or security, following three strays as they embark on inconspicuous journeys through Turkish society. Zeytin, fiercely independent, embarks on adventures through the city at night. Nazar, nurturing and protective, easily befriends the humans around her while Kartal, a shy puppy living on the outskirts of a construction site, finds companions in the security guards who care for her. The strays’ disparate lives intersect when they each form intimate bonds with a group of young Syrians with whom they share the streets. Director Elizabeth Lo’s award-winning film is a critical observation of human civilization through the unfamiliar gaze of dogs and a sensory voyage into new ways of seeing.

Elizabeth Lo graduated from the MFA Documentary Film Program at Stanford in 2015. Stray is her first feature documentary and the winner of many festival awards including Best Documentary Feature at Hot Docs 2020. 

All sales end at 11:59 PM PST the night before the movie. To learn more about our COVID-19 Safety Guidelines, click here
