Documentary Film Uncovers Desperate Homeless Cat Situation
- Wednesday, Jun. 8, 2022
Premiering on June 21, 'Crazy Cat Lady' highlights LA's cat population explosion, political apathy, and hero citizens that save innocent cats and kittens and in doing so help their community
The documentary feature film, 'Crazy Cat Lady,' releases on digital streaming platforms June 21, 2022 via Random Media. The film stars Battlestar Galactica and Lucifer actor Tricia Helfer along with famed animal rights activist and philanthropist, Ady Gil, and FixNation Organization Co-Founder and Director, Karn Myers. Also featured are extraordinary citizen volunteers Jacquie Navratil, Esmeralda Alvarez, Drew Weidhaas, and Donna Simms.
The film digs deep into the underreported estimated 3,000,000 abandoned homeless feral cats in Greater Los Angeles and the challenges around a thirteen year legal injunction (cease action) that was finally lifted in 2021 only to unveil opacity and inaction. 'Crazy Cat Lady' (CCL) documents what happens when the nation's second largest city, Los Angeles, was unable to support or fund TNR (trap/neuter/return) programs. As a result, the monumental task of mitigating this crisis has been in the hands of citizen volunteer trappers, fosterers, and rescuers. These ironically named "crazy cat people" generously give their own time, money, and efforts to help resolve this ever-growing issue.
The film has had phenomenal success on the festival circuit scooping up dozens of accolades and awards such as Best U.S. Documentary at The Oaks International Film Festival, 2022, Best Documentary at Golden Gate International Film Festival 2021.
States Director and Producer, Garrett Clancy, "You don't have to be a fanatical cat or animal lover to witness the injustice, neglect and greed that envelope our communities." Clancy further states, "This issue is supposed to be addressed and managed by our policymakers—utilizing our tax dollars—instead it was forced on ordinary citizens to solve, or should I say extraordinary citizens."
