Welcome to the friendly skies of Flying Fur Animal Rescue!

Paul Steklenski saves animals by flying them from kill-shelters to their forever homes. Path 88 Productions has been following Paul and his network of devoted animal rescuers as they try to save numerous dogs and cats.

Changing the fate of these lovable creatures is no easy task. Making it all come together is stressful time consuming work. Failure is not an option as so many lives are at stake, but sometimes failure can't be avoided. Can Flying Fur and the rescue network overcome their challenges? Our documentary film explores the skill, commitment, and emotions that are needed in an attempt to fly these pets to happier lives.

"Our goal with the 36 minute film is to heighten appreciation about the volunteers saving lives in the world of animal rescue. We also want our screening events to raise awareness for your local animal rescue organizations. As part of the screening we would like to invite regional shelters and allow them to distribute information about their organizations."

A film by Jay Craven
Based on the novel by Guy de Maupassant
Starring Golden Globe winner, Jacqueline Bisset, Christian Coulson, Diane Guerrero, Shane Patrick Kearns, Gordon Clapp, and Susan Kelechi Watson.

PETER AND JOHN tells the story of two brothers whose relationship strains when the younger one receives news of a strange inheritance and both brothers grow attracted to a mysterious young woman who arrives on their island. Based on Guy de Maupassant’s 19th century seaside novel, Pierre et Jean is widely credited for changing the course of narrative fiction through its complex and intense psychological characterizations of a family brought to the breaking point by startling revelations.

“Peter and John has an almost mythic quality. With exceptional visual and auditory beauty, the film’s small story, precisely told, is relevant, as good art is, beyond its specific setting.”

—Provincetown Banner

“It sizzles underneath its beautiful island scenery and authentic 1800s propriety. The performances and mystery remain riveting, with Jacqueline Bisset a powerhouse.

—The Rutland Herald and Times Argus

“Stunning. Craven’s film is reminiscent of Merchant-Ivory period pieces like “The Europeans” in that it’s character-driven. Watching the movie is like reading a good book–you stick with it, and you’re glad you did.”

—Cape Cod Times

"Whether you’re religious or not, you owe it to yourself to see this movie if the chance arises. You’ll see how much love and feeling went into the construction of the resulting album. Additionally, “Amazing Grace” is profoundly moving and extraordinarily soothing. Nowadays we could use a good salve. To paraphrase another gospel standard, if we ever needed this film before, we sure do need it now."
-Odie Henderson, rogerebert.com
