  • (1888PressRelease) February 22, 2017 - Cat fanatics everywhere rejoice! A new documentary that takes viewers on a journey into the unique, often bizarre world of Japanese cat obsession is set to release at the end of April.

    The film, "Cat Nation: A Film About Japan's Crazy Cat Culture" is the latest documentary from filmmaker Tim Delmastro. The film explores the Japanese fascination with cats, from cat-scented hygiene products to cats with human jobs and everything in between.

    "While travelling through Japan, everywhere I looked cats were being used in really odd and creative ways" says Tim.

    The film stars British YouTube personality Chris Broad, who treks across Japan to document numerous unusual cat-centric activities such as cat themed cafes, bars, temples, and even entire cat islands.

    The film, which is currently slated to be a short documentary, was fully funded in just 48 hours on popular crowd-funding website Kickstarter. With still almost a month left to receive additional funding, the project is edging closer to its $20,000 stretch goal, which will see it transform from a twenty five minute short into a full-length feature documentary.

    The project will be live on Kickstarter until the 18th of March. For more information, visit
