Peaceable Kingdom: December 2
“Peaceable Kingdom: The Journey Home,” offers a nuanced exploration of moral conflicts experienced by those who grow up in farm culture, as well as rare footage depicting the family bonds and emotional lives of farm animals.
Forks Over Knives: December 16
Examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods.
Modern farms are struggling to keep a secret. Most of the animals used for food in the United States are raised in giant, bizarre factories, hidden deep in remote areas of the countryside. The documentary takes viewers on a sometimes funny, sometimes frightening adventure, crawling through the bushes that hide these factories, flying in airplanes above their toxic “manure lagoons,” and coming face-to-face with their owners.
