Tom McPhee's An American Opera: The Greatest Pet Rescue Ever!

<http://anamericanopera.com/> www.AnAmericanOpera.com


This is your opportunity to bring a multi-award winning documentary and the
filmmaker, Tom McPhee, to your community! Tom McPhee, an innovator in media
for 15 years, is also available to put on workshops for those in your
community. He is also teaming with elementary schools around the country to
get children interested in animals and documentary film. You could have An
American Opera, the filmmaker, film/media workshops, AND be involved in his
current project My Senior Year, a film based on 10,000 interviews of people
over the age of 60.

I hope you will join me in this endeavor to make libraries a safe haven for
independent film and filmmakers!

Tom McPhee's An American Opera: The Greatest Pet Rescue Ever! is a visceral,
operatic vision of what happened to the pet owners of New Orleans who were
forced to evacuate after Hurricane Katrina without their beloved pets and
the volunteers who came from all over the world to help. America suffered
its worst domestic animal crisis in history when tens of thousands of
animals were left to perish in neighborhoods all across the gulf. This
heartfelt story follows the pets, vets, owners, officials, rescuers, and
adopters of animals as they work through the chaos to do what is right, only
to discover not everyone is working toward the same goal.

Here's what the Best Small Library in America thought about An American
Opera:


"The Best Small Library in America for 2008", McKune Memorial Library hosts
the Public Premiere of the International Film Festival Favorite and Multi
Award-Winning 'AN AMERICAN OPERA'

"We were immediately bombarded with calls and reservations for this special
event," said Marketing & Development Coordinator Wendy Smith. "The response
from the patrons afterward was incredible. Everyone in attendance was
greatly impressed with not only Tom McPhee's story, but his film making as
well. We are truly fortunate to have such talent in Chelsea!"

Those who were unable to secure a reservation for the full house screening
in Chelsea, MI can look for future presentations of 'An American Opera' in
the calendar of events for public libraries in the region throughout 2009.
"I believe in the public library system as a way to provide unique art and
entertainment to people," McPhee said. "I am committed to providing 80 to
120 in person screenings in 2009 of 'An American Opera' throughout the vast
library network we have in North America - large and small alike."

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
