AWAKE & AWARE is a conscious cinema program that presents opportunities to see and understand the relations between things, people, and processes, things that we usually might not see completely because of our perception of our circumstances.

Drawing on interviews with veteran activists like Civil Rights leader Bernard Lafayette, scientists like behaviorist Frans de Waal and neuroscientist Marco Iacoboni, Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, political scientist Erica Chenoweth, futurist Elisabet Sahtouris and others, THE THIRD HARMONY will help the general public, often at a loss to understand the protests occurring in many cities, to better grasp just what nonviolence is and how it works.

The film also delves into the important role that nonviolence plays in the wider struggle to develop a new theory of human nature, how every one of us can add to our personal growth and fulfillment while benefitting society through the use of this time-tested power. Directed and produced by the respected nonviolence scholar and author, Michael Nagler, co-founder of the Peace and Conflict Studies Department at U.C. Berkeley, THE THIRD HARMONY gives viewers the deep awareness that nonviolence is a serious field of study, or in the words of Mahatma Gandhi, “Nonviolence is not the inanity people have taken it for.” This is echoed in the film by Tiffany Easthom, Executive Director of the Nonviolent Peaceforce, when discussing the power of unarmed civilian protection as a tool in the nonviolent toolkit: this is not about being “peace activists who hope that unicorns and rainbows will rule the world one day. This is hard work.”

Changing the story that makes violence of all kinds seem practical in our world is hard work. But it’s certainly time for this change to happen. THE THIRD HARMONY contributes to that important effort.
