Now I really wish I were in Cannes! So this guy named Martin likes to race his cat, Midge. Midge has one eye. He didn't try to race her (that would be cruel), but she would follow him on runs, and one time she accelerated to race him. She won! He began training.
After winning £1,000 (about $1,500) from his employer to fulfill a dream, he wrote, directed, and costarred with Midge in The Great Race, which has now been selected for the Short Film Corner at Cannes. The eight-minute film has been billed "the ultimate showdown" between man and cat. Meow!
