An interview with the human brain behind the internet phenomenon of feline ennui — Henri, Le Chat Noir

Daniel Kepl interviews filmmaker Will Braden, who on a lark created a persona and series of video shorts about a friend’s cat Henry – aka Henri, Le Chat Noir, an animal suffering the agonizing boredom of extreme existential angst. Entering the Walker Art Center‘s First Internet Cat Video Film Festival competition in Minneapolis in 2012, Braden’s film Henri 2: Paw de Deux won the coveted Golden Kitty Award. The Internet Cat Video Film Festival World Tour, a curated collection of 85 cat clips, with Braden serving as genial host and cat trivia quizmeister, visits three venues in central and southern California next week, beginning in San Luis Obispo at 7:30pm Tuesday, January 21st in the Christopher Cohan Center, Performing Arts Center San Luis Obispo (805) 756-4849 – a benefit for the Cal Poly Cat Program which captures, neuters and releases feral cats; The Federal Bar in Long Beach on January 24th and Echoplex in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles on January 25th.
