The Rescue Party Tour
An American Opera and The Rescue Party Tour
Heartrending but ultimately uplifting, An America Opera is a
documentary on the pet evacuation mission following Hurricane Katrina. Following
the disaster, director Tom McPhee headed out to help and his resultant
acclaimed feature-length documentary explores the aftermath of the tragedy and
the displacement of New Orleans’ house pets. Both wrenching and inspirational, McPhee
explores the human/animal bond in light of a catastrophic situation and
highlights the extraordinary individuals involved in the rescue mission, as
well as those that stood in the way.
McPhee is now commencing a year-long tour of his film across
the United States. Entitled, The Rescue Party
Tour he aims to showcase local animal rescue organizations and rescue groups
allowing them to raise awareness of all they do in their communities.
