Miss Liberty

An amazing tale of freedom

A Film in Development

Miss Liberty is our film in pre-production about an eponymous, fictional cow who escapes from a slaughterhouse and the human drama that ensues. This capricious tale tugs at the heart and the surprise ending will leave you amazed—that’s a promise.

The idea for this family feature film, and the original screenplay, come from my husband, William Melton. I then joined the writing team, and Gene Baur, co-founder and president of Farm Sanctuary, came on as an executive producer.

Things are speeding up now, thanks to a donation for the project from the Taiwanese Buddhist leader, Supreme Master Ching Hai. The crowdfunding process will be underway soon. In the meantime, please follow @MissLibertyFilm on Twitter for updates.

Two actors with names we all recognize are interested in playing a couple of the key roles, but we can’t share those names until these distinguished professionals are officially “attached.” That means we need to seek investment to get things moving forward in earnest.


The world is crying for generosity and benevolence, and it extends certain kindnesses to those who show them.
