Peaceable Kingdom DVD - The Journey Home

Winner of many film awards such as at the Moondance Festival, Canadian Film Festival and the Environmental Film Festival at Yale.

A riveting story of transformation and healing it explores the awakening conscience of several people who grew up in traditional farming culture and who have now come to question the basic assumptions of their way of life.

Presented through a woven tapestry of memories, music, and breathtaking accounts of life-altering moments, the film provides insight into the farmers’ sometimes amazing connections with the animals under their care, while also making clear the complex web of social, psychological and economic forces that have led them to their present dilemma.

Interwoven with the farmers’ stories is the dramatic animal rescue work of a newly-trained humane police officer whose sense of justice puts her at odds with the law she is charged to uphold.

With strikingly honest interviews and rare footage demonstrating the emotional lives and intense family bonds of animals most often viewed as living commodities, this groundbreaking documentary shatters stereotypical notions of farmers, farm life, and perhaps most surprisingly, farm animals themselves.

“This beautiful movie has helped to inspire, motivate and educate me. This film does such an amazing job of balance: balancing the horror of the lives of farm animals with the joy of those who have been rescued, balancing the disconnect of society with the stories of people who have opened their circle of compassion, the happy and the sad… such a powerful, beautiful and provocative film.” (22-year-old viewer)

Just as influential as EARTHLINGS in making people change the way they eat and view animals in thier lives, but not as graphic.

Dealing with the issues of factory farming and the costs of what it takes to produce animal based foods.
