About the film...
Peaceable Kingdom: The Journey Home is a new documentary by the award-winning filmmakers of The Witness.
A story of transformation and healing, this groundbreaking new film explores the awakening conscience of several people who grew up in traditional farming culture and have now come to question the basic assumptions of their way of life.
The 78-minute documentary features seven remarkable individuals engaged in a courageous struggle of conscience, each trying to re-integrate the parts of themselves that were fragmented by expectations and experiences that went against their deepest natures. The film provides insight into their 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 conflict.
Described by many viewers as "a life-changing experience," Peaceable Kingdom: The Journey Home shatters stereotypical notions of farmers, farm life, and perhaps most surprisingly, farm animals themselves.
