Join us for a special benefit screening of the new documentary SMART with director Justin Zimmerman and film subjects Armando Navarrete and Annette Ramirez in attendance! Proceeds to benefit the Oregon Humane Society.
SMART (2016): In Los Angeles, the members of SMART (Specialized Mobile Animal Rescue Team) are dedicated to saving the lives of animals no matter how extreme the circumstances. Led by Armando Navarrete, this division of trained and passionate animal lovers risks life and limb to rescue every kind of creature in need, from horses and mountain lions to cats and dogs! While struggling to get his team off the ground, Armando survives death-defying rescues and finds love, all in the midst of LA’s heartbreaking animal shelter system. Together, Armando and his team have saved over 1,000 lives and created new tactics, technology, and inspiration for similar programs to develop in more cities. Filmed over the course of three years, SMART shows how a team of passionate and dedicated people can become real-life superheroes.
Followed by a panel discussion with director Justin Zimmerman, film subjects Armando Navarrete and Annette Ramirez, and members of the Oregon Humane Society Technical Animal Rescue (OHSTAR) team.
