“A Prayer for Compassion”
a documentary film by Thomas Jackson
“Without a doubt, A Prayer for Compassion is the most powerful film ever made on the issue of religion, animals and food.” ~ Jewish Veg
Are you ever overwhelmed by the suffering in the world and dire predictions for the future? So was filmmaker Thomas Jackson, winner of a Student Academy Award for his short, Slow Dancin’ Down the Aisles of the QuickMart. He responded by setting out on a quest to discover the seeds of compassion in all the world’s religions, and learn that peace just might begin our our plates.
