A] Peaceable Kingdom Screening Fri. Mar 18th, 7pm @ Healing Earth

Special Screening of award-winning documentary, Peaceable Kingdom

We're encouraging vegetarians and vegans to bring non-veg friends and

family. This film is able to talk about what many of us have such a

hard time explaining to the non-veg folks in our lives.

A film Dr. Jane Goodall has called A masterpiece.

Friday, March 18th, 7:00pm

Healing Earth Resources (3111 N Ashland Ave, Chicago)

Free and open to the public

Peaceable Kingdom, a 70-minute documentary that is currently showing

at film festivals across the country, highlights the struggles of

people who have come to a point in their lives where they must follow

their conscience, even though it means giving up their livelihood,

their community, and all they were raised to believe and do.

It's about a fourth-generation Montana cattle rancher who experiences

an epiphany during a health crisis and resolves to devote his life to

undoing the damage done by his agribusiness empire. It's about a

Michigan beef farmer whose childhood wounds are healed by the

unexpected affection of a sanctuary cow. And it's about a young

couple who stumble upon a massive injustice hidden away by the

factory farming industry, and find they cannot turn away, even though

they can only help one animal at a time.

An inspiring story of personal redemption, compassion, healing and

hope, Peaceable Kingdom recently received the Ojai Film Festival

theme award for "enriching the human spirit through film." The film

had its World Premiere at Lincoln Center in Manhattan and has been

selling out theatres and receiving standing ovations in major cities

where it has been shown.

Dont miss this special free screening of Peaceable Kingdom! The film

will be followed by discussion and refreshments

Peaceable Kingdom is a beautiful film and a must-see. Alicia

I wish I could go with you to see Peaceable Kingdom, DeathofDecadenc, but I've got other plans that night. I've been to a couple of COW Van events, and actually worked handing out fliers to people at one of them. When you look at the COW Van website, the guy in the blue t-shirt in the bottom photo is Mike, and the guy with the plaid shirt in the 2nd and 3rd pics is Bob...they are the two who run the show, and they're really nice. Even if you don't have anyone to go with, I recommend attending, anyway.
