Special short presentation from the San Antonio Humane Society by Cathy McCoy, Director of PR & Outreach.
Hailed as “absorbing,” “a must see,” “Oscar material” and “the best movie at SXSW,” MINE is a documentary about the essential bond between humans and animals, set against the backdrop of one of the worst natural disasters in modern U.S. history: Hurricane Katrina. This gripping, character-driven story follows New Orleans residents as they attempt the daunting task of trying to reunite with their pets who have been adopted by families all over the country, and chronicles the custody battles that arise when two families love the same pet. Who determines the fate of the animals-and the people-involved? A compelling meditation on race, class and the power of compassion, MINE examines how we treat animals as an extension of how we view and treat each other.
