SXSW 2009: Looking For Pets Lost After Katrina In 'Mine'

Nathan Cone
Director/Producer Geralyn Pezanoski, Jesse Pullins

 Director/Producer Geralyn Pezanoski spent three years following the stories of families that lost pets in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. After the storm hit, hundreds of pets were rescued and adopted by families across the country. Some of them were reunited with their families and owners, others were not. Pezanoski’s film, “Mine” won an audience award as Best Doucmentary at the 2009 South By Southwest film festival. Jesse Pullins is one of the film’s subjects. His family is still living in Houston while he works in New Orleans and searches for his dog, JJ. Nathan Cone spoke to Pezanoski and Pullins in Austin. 

SXSW Screening Times:

Saturday, March 21, 4:30 p.m. at the Austin Convention Center.
