Best Documentary award for Peaceable Kingdom and other highlights of World Premiere Weekend! (Video)
An enthusiastic and dedicated team came together to give the new film a successful launch!
Dear Friends,

We are back from Boulder, where Peaceable Kingdom: The Journey Home won the "Spirit of Moondance" Best Feature Documentary award! The film is already off to a great start, thanks to the compassionate people of Boulder who gave us a warm reception with a full house screening and a standing-room-only Q&A following the film.

Because a picture is worth a thousand words, and a video is worth even more, we have compiled some images and interviews from our world premiere weekend to help share the experience with you.


The weekend's events brought together an inspired and inspiring team of individuals whose dedication and infectious enthusiasm helped make the premiere a success. Our sincerest gratitude goes out to the film's associate producers Eric Huang and Kevin Smith, Tribe of Heart's international coordinator Italia Millan, and extaordinary volunteers Pam Page, Barbara Bear and Matt Bear, along with Donna Marino and Kellie Cremer, and of course, Harold Brown, who made the trip to Boulder to participate in the premiere events and to give a presentation the following day.

We also extend our heartfelt gratitude to the other subjects of the film who were not able to attend: Howard and Willow Jeane, Cheri and Jim, Cayce and Jason; to Kevin and Joy, whose musical talents infused the film with energy and spirit; and to the many friends and colleagues of Tribe of Heart whose generosity and assitance made this film project possible and who helped see it through the many challenges to the finish line. We felt all of you with us when the lights dimmed and the first frame appeared on screen. We hope to meet up with many of you as we take the film on the road in the coming months.

RaccoonOn our last night in Boulder, we were given a very personal reminder that to each animal in need, even the smallest gesture of help can make all the difference in the world. You can read the story of Ronnie, one very lucky raccoon, here. What a fitting way to end our World Premiere Weekend!

Warm wishes,
James LaVeck and Jenny Stein, Co-founders of Tribe of Heart

PS: DVD release in 2010. Details to come.

We hope that you will take the time to visit each of these sites, and consider getting involved with these small-scale organizations, whose founders we had the pleasure of getting to know during our time in Boulder. They are each doing world-class work of global significance.
