Event

SLIFF - Furever
Furever
Amy Finkel, U.S., 2013, 80 min.
Friday, Nov. 22, 7:30 p.m., Webster U./Moore
"Furever" sympathetically explores the grief that people experience over the loss of a pet. Because dogs and cats are increasingly regarded as part of the family unit in the U.S., the veterinary profession and death-care industry have adapted to both acknowledge and exploit that evolution in pets' status. The film interviews grieving pet owners, veterinarians, psychologists, sociologists, religious scholars, and neuroscientists about the human-animal bond and the often devastating effects of a pet's death. More provocatively, "Furever" talks to the surprising variety of artists and entrepreneurs who re-purpose a pet's cremains in unique ways and professionals who preserve a pet's body through methods such as taxidermy, cloning, mummification, and freeze-drying. Film Threat calls "Furever" an "always-thoughtful, sometimes-absurd, and completely amazing documentary."

Shown with My Darling Dog Has Cancer (Marinka de Jongh, Netherlands, 2013, 25 min.): A glimpse into the daily life of a Dutch animal hospital that specializes in treating animals with cancer.
