    Documentary Film Night: Peaceable Kingdom

    Time: Wednesday, June 1, 7:30 PM
    Location: Symposia Bookstore
    510 Washington St.
    Hoboken, NJ 07030
    Map and Directions
    Information: Peaceable Kingdom, an inspiring new 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.

    The film will be followed by refreshments and a discussion.

      DELAYED REACTION by Israeli Filmmaker, Samuel Calderon

      Tel Aviv, 1991. 33-year-old Meni spends his time gambling and working as a DJ at the club he manages with an old childhood friend. His life moves in self-destructive circles, without direction or commitments. The tension of the Gulf War creates further pressures upon his already unstable life. Economic problems further suffocate him and he has increasingly frequent panic attacks. He doesn’t understand what is happen to him until he falls into a psychotic fit.
      Meni is hospitalized and awakes in the world “on the other side of the mirror”. There, in the different logical world of the characters he encounters, he learns something about himself. For the first time he realizes that he is suffering form delayed shock, which put the downward spiral of his life into a new perspective.
      Director�s Statement:
      The film Delayed Reaction attempts to weave together various insights to the traumatic reality of life in Israel with the surrealist reality of life in the closed ward of a psychiatric hospital.
      Patients, who come from different backgrounds, meet in the closed ward. They include secular Jews, religious Jews, Arabs, long forgotten Holocaust survivors and others.
