In the great flood of the Noah's Ark story, animals were saved two-by-two. Not so with the great floods of Hurricane Katrina. There were no arks; there were no clear directives from a higher power. It was a time of literally sinking or swimming, and it's nearly impossible to swim, climb into a rescue boat, or board a bus to shelter with an animal or two in your arms. So hurricane victims were, for the most part, forced to fend for themselves and hope for the best for Fido and Fluffy. The film Mine navigates legal complexities and tugs liberally on the heartstrings as it follows the stories of some of these pets--along with the trials and tribulations of their owners, who face red tape, new family bonds and other situations that make their reunions more complicated than simply closing the carrier door and driving away. Mine screens at 6 and 8 p.m. Friday, 5 p.m. Saturday and 2 and 4 p.m. Sunday at The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, 3200 Darnell St. Tickets are $8.50, $6.50 for Modern members.
