The Cat Rescuers Kit-Tea Party
THE CAT RESCUERS, a feature documentary by award winning filmmakers Rob Fruchtman (SISTER HELEN) and Steven Lawrence (SARABAH), will be shown at the Ancram Opera House on Saturday April 27th starting at 2pm as part of a spring fundraiser for local cat rescues Collaborative Cats and Cat Wranglers of Claverack. The documentary had its world premiere at the Hamptons International Film Festival where it won the Zelda Penzel Giving Voice to the Voiceless Award, given each year to a film that inspires audiences to respect the dignity and rights of all living beings and encourages dialogue about how we treat and view animals as a community.
At the heart of THE CAT RESCUERS is a question many of us have faced what to do if you come across a starving or injured animal? For Sassee, Claire, Tara and Stu, all busy full-time professionals who live in Brooklyn, the answer was clear: they must help.
At first none of them knew what they were doing, but they soon learned the tricks of the trade and, to their shock, discovered the problem was bigger than they had imagined: at least 500,000 abandoned and feral cats on NYCs streets and the city doing little to address the problem.
THE CAT RESCUERS follow Sassee, Claire, Tara and Stu night and day as they hit the streets, backyards and alleys of Brooklyn to save feline lives. As the film unfolds, it shows the extraordinary skill, resilience and humor these passionate urban heroes bring to this challenging work, and how it has changed their lives. Against great odds, they are making a difference.
The Cat Rescuers film will be followed by the Kit-Tea party featuring refreshments by Harney Tea and delicious sweets by local volunteers. Kittens and cats will be available for viewing and adoption. Collaborative Cats annual Spring Raffle winners will be chosen.
