This release just in: On Tuesday, February 16th at 10:00 pm (check local listings), PBS’ Independent Lens series is proud to present MINE.
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 is not only an examination of how we treat our animals, but how we treat each other.
