Imagine awakening one day to realize the work you were trained to do since birth, the values taught in your family for generations, went against the deepest part of your being?

Howard Lymon is a former rancher who assisted Oprah Winfrey when the beef industry sued her unsuccessfully for her statement, “(Lymon’s information) stopped me cold from eating another burger.”  He had turned his family’s small organic farm into a giant feedlot; but after a health crisis he realized his operation was destroying everything he loved, including his health, the environment - and the animals.  His, and many other stories, are vividly told in PEACEABLE

KINGDOM, which centers on Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen.  Lori and Gene Bauston, founders of Farm Sanctuary, had investigated stockyards and found sick animals piled on top of dead animals.  A spontaneous act of mercy for a dying sheep turned into a lifetime commitment to shelter hundreds of rescued animals and transform the way farm animals are viewed in our society.

PEACEABLE KINGDOM has screened at 24 film festivals across the country.  It had its world premiere at Lincoln Center, where guests included tv jounalist Bill Moyers, members of the US Congress, and musician Moby, whose music was donated for the film.  An inspiring story of compassion, redemption, healing and hope, it received the Ojai Film Festival theme award for ‘enriching the human spirit through film.’

Imagine awakening one day to realize everything you’d been taught since birth didn’t make sense anymore...
