Tribeca Film Festival - Owen & Mzee - Baby Hippo and Tortise Friend

The Tribeca Film Festival, started by Robert DeNiro shortly after 9/11 to bring the WTC and Tribeca areas back to life - now an annual event for movie buffs and especially families.

One of this year's films is Owen & Mzee, residents at the Haller Zoo in Kenya. An uplifting story and film (actually as an e-book), about an orphaned hippo (during the tsunami) and his tortise friend/care taker. There's a slide show, a video and e-book all available to download.

Message - we can all get along!
