"Mine" tells the poignant and powerful story of animals left behind during Katrina, and of the struggles of hurricane victims to reunite with their beloved pets. A meditation on the essential bond between humans and animals, this program is an equally compelling story of race and class — and the power of compassion — in contemporary America.
"Home" is a touching portrayal of the essence of home and the feeling of loss that occurs when home becomes a memory.
Director Matthew Faust conveys his themes through a bittersweet, evocative archive of his family house in Chalmette, Louisiana, that was flooded by Hurricane Katrina.
