PEACEABLE KINGDOM: THE JOURNEY HOME (USA, 2009, 78 min.)
Washington, D.C. Premiere A riveting story of transformation and healing, this film explores the awakening conscience of several people who grew up in traditional farming/animal husbandry 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, the film provides insight into the amazing connections that farmers, shelter owners and a humane police officer have with the animals under their care. Also clarified is the complex web of social, psychological and economic forces that have led them to their present dilemma. Directed by Jenny Stein. Produced by James LaVeck.
Discussion with filmmakers Jenny Stein and James LaVeck and Harold Brown, featured in the film, follows screening.
