Hailed as “absorbing,” “a must see,” “Oscar material” and “the best movie at SXSW,” MINE is a feature-length, independent 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 examines how we treat animals as an extension of how we view and treat each other.

Geralyn Pezanoski, Co-Founder of Smush Media, has 12 years of experience in film and video production and makes her feature directorial debut with MINE.

Film producing credits include the narrative short, On A Tuesday (Santa Barbara & LAIFF) and Motherland (SXSW), and directing credits include the doc series Firehouse (Sony Pictures Entertainment). She lives in San Francisco with her husband Peter and their dog Nola.

The Santa Cruz SPCA, with the help of countless staff members, volunteers, foster homes, and the generosity of Doris Day, enacted one of the largest airlifts of dogs and cats from the Hurricane Katrina disaster site. Over 180 animals were saved, reunited and re-homed due to their valiant efforts. The Santa Cruz SPCA is an entirely donation-run, non-profit, no-kill shelter, that fights to insure the best possible quality of life for animals and to promote respect and reverence for all. Their mission is to strive to prevent cruelty to animals, to stop pet overpopulation, to promote community responsibility and for the humane care, treatment and well-being of all animals through adoption, education, information, and action. Proceeds from this presentation of MINE: The Movie will benefit the Santa Cruz SPCA.

Hailed by the New York Times as “Smart, sincere and affecting”

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.


In their biggest fundraiser of the year, the Santa Cruz SPCA in Conjunction with Film Movement are proud to present “Mine, The Movie” at the historic Rio Theatre, on Saturday, November 6th. This screening commemorates the fifth anniversary of the Hurricane Katrina disaster and the efforts of the Santa Cruz SPCA who, with the help of countless volunteers, medical professionals, foster homes, boarding facilities and donors, enacted one of the largest airlifts of the disaster in which over 150 animals were airlifted to safety. The airlifts were made possible by donor and renowned animal-lover Doris Day, who provided the SPCA with vital funds needed for the rescue and recuperation of the disaster-stricken animals.
