ARE WE NOT CATS tells the story of a young man attempting to restart his life after losing his job, girlfriend, and apartment in a single day. His plans are diverted when he meets a woman who shares his strangest habit – the impulse to pull out and eat their own hair. Xander Robin’s genre defying feature debut flings the audience on a rollercoaster ride of emotions – lovingly balanced by two vulnerable actors, a pulsating soundtrack and gritty, colorful cinematography.
