Peaceable Kingdom: The Journey Home is a new documentary by the award-winning filmmakers of The Witness.
A riveting story of transformation and healing, this 78-minute documentary portrays the experience of five farmers, an animal rescuer and a humane police officer, each engaged in a courageous struggle of conscience. As they attempt to re-integrate parts of themselves that were fragmented by expectations and experiences that went against their deepest natures, they reveal the complex web of social, psychological and economic forces that have led to their present conflict. Their powerful testimony, combined with rare footage providing insight into the emotional lives of animals, creates an unforgettable portrait of farm life that many viewers have called "a life-changing experience."
The work of documentary filmmakers Jenny Stein and James LaVeck, has been recognized by film festival juries and audience members for its uncompromising yet compassionate portrayal of the interplay between what is most troubling in human society with what is most inspiring in human nature. LaVeck (producer) and Stein (director) are co-founders of the Ithaca, New York-based non-profit documentary production organization Tribe of Heart.
For the last ten years, Tribe of Heart films have appeared in 80 festivals around the world and won 17 top awards, including 4 for Best of Festival and 12 for Best Documentary. Their work has appeared on PBS, LinkTV, FreeSpeech TV, and the United Kingdom's Community Channel.
