“First produced in 2004, Peaceable Kingdom is a documentary featuring several farmers who said no to killing animals and their journey towards converting to veganism.
A newer version with the title Peaceable Kingdom: The Journey Home, which premiered in 2009, explores the experiences of people with traditional farming backgrounds on their moral struggle with their way of life.
This film touches on healing and transformation, showing the relationship and connection of the farmers to the animals under their care, while at the same time offering insight into the complicated network of social and economic forces creating their inner conflict.
Aside from the farmers’ stories, another striking scenario is the humane act of rescuing animals by a newly-trained police officer.
Peaceable Kingdom displays the emotional lives of animals and destroys the conventional image of farmers and farm life”.
