This is 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, “Mine” is an equally compelling story of race and class — and the power of compassion — in contemporary America. By Geralyn Pezanoski. Documentary short “Home” mixes imagery from the filmmaker's childhood home before and after Katrina.
