352-871-4335Tribe of Heart is a 501c(3) charitable not-for-profit organization dedicated to producing media and art projects that encourage compassionate living, a way of life that entails cultivating an ever deeper understanding of the effects of our actions on other living beings and the planet that supports us all. James LaVeck cofounder of Tribe of Heart, will present his latest production, Peaceable Kingdom, in the cinema of the Reitz Union.
A story told in the words of those who grew up on farms, those who care daily for rescued farm animals, and those who seek community and sanctuary from a world that often seems cruel, Peaceable Kingdom weaves together themes of respect, forgiveness, commitment, healing, and a vision for peace that begins on one’s plate.
"At a time when the public is more concerned than ever about the health and environmental problems associated with large-scale factory farming, Peaceable Kingdom explores another angle of this unfolding story: the interconnected life journeys of farm animals, former farmers, and animal rescuers struggling against an out of control industrial system.
Breaking generations of silence in the farm community, Peaceable Kingdom weaves together themes of respect, forgiveness, commitment, and healing, offering a vision of a more peaceful world that is well within our reach." - Tribe of Heart Productions
