Join Tribe of Heart, producers of The Witness, for a FREE screening of their new award-winning film, 'Peaceable Kingdom: The Journey Home', at the 2010 Peace on Earth Film Festival in Chicago.

Inspired by the idea that one person's change of heart can change the world, ‘Peaceable Kingdom: The Journey Home’ explores the ethical awakening 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.

The screening of the movie is FREE and on a first come - first served, basis so please try to arrive earlier to make sure that you will be admitted to the event. It means we will not have a true RSVP for this event. For this reason we will not check in people as we normally do for our events but please feel free to find Irma (she will wear her name tag) to say Hi. We still ask to RSVP on our event page just for organizers to have an idea who and how many people are going to be there and also so that you may pool up with other friends.

Please use the comments section to offer/request carpool.
