The Reel Women's Network

In Peace We Trust Nonviolence - The Next Great Revolution is an inspiring half-hour documentary exploring the mission and philosophy of the Meta Peace Team.  Learn how co-founder C. Peter Dougherty and team members have used and shared active nonviolence techniques as alternatives to militarism over the past 25 years in The United States and abroad​.

Hello Friends,
Thanks for visiting.  2020 has been a year of change and new beginnings.  COVID-19 interrupted everyone’s plans and the pandemic is forcing all of us to be safe and creative.  I was working with the Meta Peace Team to organize a summer tour for my last documentary In Peace We Trust, and like so many public events we had to postpone the tour.  So when I heard from the Reel Women’s Network a new online streaming service showcasing content made by women I was excited to be a part of this important and much needed new network.  In Peace We Trust is now available on RWN!
I have great respect for the women behind The Reel Women’s Network.  It was created by Open book Productions and Bella Productions.  They understand why creating an outlet for women (and men) to support women in film and media is so important. 

Why is it important to support women in film?

Non-Violence: The Next Great Revolution

The documentary film In Peace We Trust by Petra Daher Productions explores the Meta Peace Team, a group promoting non-violent alternatives for over 20 years in the United States and abroad.

The documentary exposes how the MPT provides resources for citizens to become peacemakers and the benefits and success of non-violent alternatives.

Poor People's Campaign 2018

It was an honor to document the Michigan Poor People's Campaign.  The event was inspired by the work of Martin Luther King.  The original campaign happened 50 years ago, to learn more visit the website or follow the group on social media.   https://www.poorpeoplescampaign.org/history/

The 2018 movement is very well organized and led by spiritual leaders and grassroots activists from around the country.  Their goal is to support the people most in need and to confront the distorted moral narrative.  Petra Productions, Photographed, filmed and captured intereviews at the first 5 actions in Michigan.
