Announcing the next documentary film on my must see list…
Peaceable Kingdom: The Journey Home
About the film:
Created by the charitable organization, Tribe of Heart, this riveting story of transformation and healing explores the awakening conscience of several people who grew up in traditional farming culture and who have now come to question the basic premises of their inherited way of life.
Presented through a woven tapestry of memories, music, and breathtaking accounts of life-altering moments, Peaceable Kingdom 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.

About Tribe of Heart.
Tribe of Heart creates ground-breaking films that awaken compassion and deepen each individual’s understanding of the interconnectedness of all life.
… as artists and as educators, the stories we would tell would not be about heroes or people of greatness, but about the greatness of the quest to become a better human being, and the heroic qualities that can awaken in any person who follows the voice of their conscience and opens their heart to the plight of those most in need. Shortly thereafter, we founded Tribe of Heart.
… we have seen with our own eyes that one person’s change of heart can truly change the world. And while our human society is often overwhelmed with cynicism, exploitation and violence, many small and simple but positive changes made by many people can become very powerful wave of transformation and peaceful change.
~James LaVeck and Jenny Stein, Founders
Guess I’ll have to buy Peaceable Kingdom since it’s not available at our library. Then I can share it in the ‘hood.
