The Emotional Lives of Farmed Animals
This companion film to Jeffrey Moussaieff Mason’s latest book, The Pig Who Sang to the Moon, offers an in depth look at the emotional lives of the sentient beings who exist primarily to become someone’s dinner. Mason visited with animals living on farm sanctuaries like Animal Place in CA and Farm Sanctuary in NY and examines the changes that come over an animal who makes it from a factory farm to the safety of a sanctuary.
"Peaceable Kingdom is a masterpiece. I hope it inspires growing numbers of people to support this desperately important cause." — Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE, UN Messenger of Peace
At a time when factory farming is in the headlines for putting the environment and public health at risk, Peaceable Kingdom takes its audience on an eye-opening journey to the heart of this unfolding national drama.
Propelled by the testimony of farmers who have themselves come to question the fundamental assumptions behind their community’s way of life, the film delivers a riveting portrait of human and animal lives caught up in an out of control industrial machine.
Much more than an exposé, Peaceable Kingdom is about personal redemption, commitment, healing and hope, offering a life-changing vision of a peaceful world that is well within our reach.
