Peaceable Kingdom: The Journey Home
US, 2010, 78 mins.
Director: Jenny Stein
A riveting story of transformation and healing, Peaceable Kingdom: The Journey Home 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.
The Spork Cafe will provide for us a special vegan/gluten free all-you-can-eat buffet dinner:
Spring Mix Salad with Herb Vinaigrette
Potato Curry Soup
Grilled Portobello & Guacamole Tacos (grilled portobello mushrooms & home made guacamole on white corn tortillas)
Spork Tacos (curried cauliflower with onions, bell peppers, tomatoes & sprouts on white corn tortillas)
Soul Hug (chilled quinoa with collard greens, asparagus, corn, tomatoes, onions & topped with a cilantro lime pesto)
Please RSVP at the Vegetarians of Central Florida meetup.
