It is important to see farm animals for what they really are -- sentient beings who can feel physical pain and who can suffer psycologically from intense confinement (not to mention fear). I have been to Farm Sanctuary's CA shelter, both as a visitor and as an intern, and it helps to see animals like pigs or cows or turkeys being cared for so lovingly after enduring various cruelties at the hands of humans. You discover that, just like our dogs and cats, each individual has his or her own personality, likes and dislikes (such as certain sleeping places or favorite foods), and generally likes to interact with people. "Peaceable Kingdom" conveys this very well, I think.
I have seen this movie 3 times so far, and it makes me laugh and cry every time. I cannot recommend it enough.
It forced me to think about personal responsibility in our everyday choices. I never realized the horrors of factory farming and the sick extent to which animals are exploited. Once you know, you can't pretend everything is ok.
This is a very important film.
A great document - a must see for all!
Peaceable Kingdom is not a film filled with despair and pain. It is instead filled with love and hope for a better world - A world that we get a glimpse of in this 77 minute documentary. A world that is easy to believe can become a reality someday.
Peaceable Kingdom provides the viewer with a roadmap to that world.
Peaceable Kingom in its finest moments will make you laugh and cry at the same time.
And if you aloow it to will give you pause and question some of the barbaric things that we do to these gentle souls that end up on our plates - and on our feet.
I found this film to be inspiring and beautiful - A wonderful escape full of real possibility that one day we may leave behind our brutal ways.
This is a film of healing and hope and I give it my highest recommendation and that is to buy it and share it with everyone you know!
