From the organizer:

Come to a free showing of the animal welfare documentary “Peaceable Kingdom: The Journey Home”. “This film tells a story of transformation and healing, and 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.”

Free entry.
