NYC Vegan EatUP Message Board › Fri, Aug 17: Watch "Peaceable Kingdom - The Journey Home" at Catsk
New York, NY
On Friday, August 17 at 7pm, Catskill Animal Sanctuary, the Hudson Valley's beloved haven for rescued horses and farm animals, is pleased to present a screening of PEACEABLE KINGDOM: THE JOURNEY HOME.
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 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 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.
$15 per person. Dessert reception with CAS Founder/Director Kathy Stevens will follow. Reserve your seat now!
