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 this Saturday (April 27th) 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.
The Cat Rescuers follows 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.
