My dog says that you simply must see the documentary, Peaceable Kingdom. It is a very powerful and touching film about animals on farms who are born and raised to be food. It's beautifully produced by Tribe of Heart (the amazing people who brought another great film to the big screen, The Witness).
Most of the movie focuses on the moving personal stories of those who are on the front lines rescuing animals and those who used to exploit these creatures, but are now advocating for their fair and ethical treatment. If you've never thought about "food animals" before, but you have a dog or cat whom you love dearly, this enlightening documentary will open your eyes in wonderful new ways.
Peaceable Kingdom has been shown at film festivals across the country, but if you happen to be in the Los Angeles area this weekend, there is a FREE screening at UCLA.
Here are the details:
When: Sunday, October 4th, at 2 pm
Where: UCLA, Kerckhoff Hall State Room,
Parking: On campus parking costs $10
Sponsors: Bruins for Animals and United Animal Advocates of LA
Following the film, there will also be a short Q & A with discussion, light refreshments, and free literature.
