Tribe of Heart's work is also recognized beyond the independent film community for its contribution to the public's understanding of the ethics of the human-animal relationship, with endorsements from Dr. Jane Goodall, The United Federation of Teachers, and the California Teachers Association.

Synopsis:
Open your eyes. Trust your heart. Take the journey. Five farmers, a humane officer, an animal rescuer, and a cow named Snickers will make you laugh and cry, expand your consciousness, and challenge your ideas about animal farming. A riveting story of transformation and healing, this award-winning documentary explores the struggle of conscience experienced by several people from traditional farming backgrounds who are now questioning the basic assumptions of their inherited way of life. A Michigan beef farmer, a Montana ranching couple, and a New England couple who started a goat dairy together acknowledge some of the amazing connections they have shared with animals under their care, while revealing the social and economic pressures that led to their inner conflict. Interwoven with the farmers' stories is the dramatic animal rescue work of a newly-trained humane police officer in rural Pennsylvania, 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 farm animals, this groundbreaking documentary shatters stereotypical notions of farmers, farm life, and perhaps most surprisingly, the animals themselves. A favorite of both audiences and film festival juries, many viewers describe this inspiring documentary as a “life changing experience.”

    In the Tucson Weekly today there is a full page restaurant review promoting foie gras with a photo of foie gras lollipops (this is a trend I was blissfully unaware of until reading the article). I sent an email to the writer and editor saying that it showed a lack of education on their part to promote this product. The writer responded by saying that "Foie gras is being produced by more humane methods on farms all over the world. People don't want to admit this but it's true. old methods are being fazed out. Check out the work Dan Barber is doing in New York". This reference is to one experimental farm with 70 geese. Somehow this makes the foie gras that she is promoting okay. I encourage you to email her and let her know otherwise. writer: [masked], editor: [masked]

      Totally disappointed to see this week's chow feature promoting foie gras - a truly inhumane food. In case you are not aware, foie gras comes from geese with hepatic lipidosis, or fatty liver disease. The quickest way to induce hepatic lipidosis in geese is by force-feeding and this is how most foie gras is produced.

      While there was talk a few years ago about a non-gavage method of making foie gras, the chef who made that idea famous (Dan Barber) has not been able to replicate it. So nearly all foie gras available is produced by force feeding geese. Disgusting.

      I have a ton of respect for the weekly as a progressive bright spot in dark Arizona, so it was disappointing to see this today.

      just another attempt to assuage guilt and justify the torture and killing of animals because they "taste good". it's all about us, after all..

    Wow guys, such a great night! Thank you all for coming, bringing others, and spreading the word. The Loft is considering an encore screening the week of Aug 5th, they would be offering it for $5 on their 100 seat screen. I'll keep you posted so you can pass it along to anyone you'd like to encourage to attend!

    Today after viewing the movie, I was able to celebrate one of Tucson's ongoing sanctuaries -- Ironwood Pot Belly Pig Sanctuary in Marana. It was wonderful to be able to volunteer my time and energy to assist real-live angels in our neighborhood. Anyone interested -- check out their website:www.ironwoodpigsanctuary.org/

    Ben - excellent job promoting this movie!!! I heard that people were turned away (which is too bad), which really speaks to all the advertising for this film. Friends of mine in Willcox said they'd heard of it and wished they could have seen it. It would be really cool if it had a run at the loft - any chance of that?

    Powerful movie, but diffictul to watch. I hope that some of the folks I saw walking in the theatre eating animal products walked out regretting it :-)

    "Peaceable Kingdom" needs to be on TV repeatedly (fat chance) so that millions can see it ~ at least as much as they can watch wthout throwing up during the many horrendous scenes. The comparison of loving, supporting, sometimes heroic rescuing, and caring about the feelings of, farm animals, with the nauseating, dissociated, brutal commodification of them, was stark but hope-giving. Thank the goddess for the Tribe of Heart filmmakers, the beautiful folks of sanctuary farms, animal rights activists, The Healthy You Network, Consuming for Change, the Loft, Tucson Vegan & Vegetarian Meetup, all who promote screenings, and all who find ways to synchronize their actions with their humane values.

    Soooo many reasons not to eat animals. Hopefully many omnivores can make sense out of choosing an animal free diet after seeing this :)

    Sold out (free) event. Not an empty seat in the house. Many people were turned away. The movie was powerful and emotional. At the end, not a single person left until ALL the credits had run.

    There is a great article about the upcoming screening in the AZ Star's Caliente last Thursday, here's the online version: http://azstarnet.com/entertainment/movies/promoting-humanity-on-the-farm/article_d42b96d3-4394-5450-98c0-2e021412c35e.html

      wow! Henry is handsome! he'll do well on RattlerMatch.com. looks like he "feels comfortable in his own skin". lol Esther went for a stroll last night - 4 1/2 feet long at least. last year Big White was cruising by the studio and appeared to be yawning. was he bored? or maybe clearing his throat or exercising his jaws? i had never seen this behavior before.

      June 30, 2013

    • Melissa A.

      It is pretty rare to see a wild snake yawn, but it happens. Shortly after eating they realign their jaws by yawning and will often yawn just before shedding their skin. But I've seen it other times too - bored? sleepy? who knows!

    I am hoping to be there. A lot of things are happening so wish me luck. : )

    Bring your hankies, this is a real tear-jerker. I saw an earlier version of this at the Sedona Film Festival years ago and everyone in the audience was weeping.

    June 19, 2013

    • Ben B

      Yeah the first one came out in 2004, then they soon retired it and spent 5 years remaking it and it started in festivals again a few years ago as "...The Journey Home". There's some tearful moments in this new one too, it's a very moving experience - I actually remember getting a little sniffly at the joyful moments which more than compensate for the few somber ones.
