‘Mine’ to be shown at Avon Public Library

Daily staff report

AVON, Colorado – The public is invited to attend a free screening of the documentary film “Mine” at 6 p.m. on Wednesday at the Avon Public Library. “Mine” is about the essential bond between humans and animals, set against the backdrop of one of the worst 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.

Now Showing @ EVLD offers free film screenings throughout the year. For a complete schedule of upcoming films, visit the Eagle Valley Library District’s website at http://www.evld.org. All film screenings are free and open to the public. Films may not be appropriate for all audiences.
