A special screening of the award-winning documentary, “Peaceable Kingdom” will begin at 6:30 p.m. Saturday in the Lake Tahoe Community College theater. The event is free and open to the public. Donations will be accepted and will benefit Lake Tahoe A.W.A.R.E., a nonprofit student club.

“Peaceable Kingdom” is a 70-minute documentary that 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.

The film is 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 the 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.

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 theaters and receiving standing ovations in major cities where it has been shown.
