DCIFF is delighted to screen Furever as part of the film's exceptionally successful festival tour.

An exploration of the dimensions of grief people experience over the loss of a pet, Furever confronts assumptions regarding attachment, religion, ritual, grief, and death, and studies the bonds that form between humans and animals, both psychological and physiological.

"Furever," the always-thoughtful, sometimes-absurd, and completely amazing documentary by Amy Finkel, reveals the astonishing steps taken by humans to mourn and remember these beloved house pets. Step into Finkel's visual kennel and become enlightened to our society's $52 billion dollar love affair with domesticated animals  one which continues well into the afterlife. According to "Furever," 62% of Americans own pets. Why? "People often disappoint us and break our trust," explains one of Finkel's interviewees. "Animals almost never do that." Film Threat  Review
