August Film: Mine

The film we’ll be watching and discussing for August is Mine, directed by Geralyn Pezanoski and written by Erin Essenmacher.

MINE is a documentary about the essential bond between humans and animals, set against the backdrop of one of the worst disasters in modern U.S. history. 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.

  1. I am SO glad I watched this excellent documentary. The arc of the story was expertly crafted. It really kept you in suspense as to the outcome of each character’s storyline. I was especially impressed with the simplicity and yet the artistry of the cinematography. Thank you for recommending this as the documentary of the month.
