Taylor Little Theatre will be showing the documentary FUREVER on Sunday, Oct. 13 at 2 p.m. FUREVER is a feature-length film that explores the grief people experience when they lose a pet.
FUREVER examines the sociological development of pets in today’s society, mostly their position in a family, and how this is affecting those in the death care industry and vets.
With interviews from grief-stricken pet owners, veterinarians, psychologists and the many professionals who preserve a pet’s body, or re-purpose a pet’s remains, FUREVER confronts expectations regarding attachment, grief, and death, and studies the connections that grow between pets and their owners.
After the showing, the filmmaker, along with the director of The A.N.N.A Shelter, Erie’s no-kill animal shelter, and experts in grief counseling will be present for a Q&A session.
Help do your part by donating supplies to benefit The A.N.N.A Shelter.
Bring blankets, food or toys for collection to help an animal in need. Any guest who brings a donation to the event will receive a $1 admission to the film.
