Three Women Filmmakers Featured

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (11-18-2017) #550: Featuring three great [women!] filmmakers whose work is in the upcoming First Annual NY Cat Film Festival and the 3rd Annual NY Dog Film Festivals. Sheila O’Rourke is a professor at UC Irvine and got a grant and spent two years making “Jetty Cats,” a sweeping documentary with an overview of cats throughout human history, while exploring the contemporary debate about Trap-Neuter-Return as the best management for community cats by looking at a long-surviving feral cat colony on a seaside jetty in Southern California; Eve Vaccaro (whose “day job” is a professional stunt woman!) is a first-time director of “It’s a Potcake Life,” a heart-breaking, heart-warming look at the Bahamas and the indigenous Royal Bahamian Potcake dog, called Potcakes, and the happy endings facilitated by an island of dedicated rescuers; veteran documentarian Markie Hancock talks about her small local film, “Scaredy, the Cat,” a charming documentary about a very shy cat who avoids everyone where she was adopted –– at the tennis courts in NYC’s Riverside park — except for a few choice people whom she eagerly greets.
