  • THE THIRD HARMONY (US, 41 min)


The Third Harmony tells the story of nonviolence through the testimony of seasoned activists, including the highly dramatic story of how women and children were recently saved from death by unarmed international actors, part of a new institution in civilian protection. We get a glimpse of the power of the force that Gandhi called nonviolence, and its implications for a whole new “story” of what it means to be a human being. What if people were as well trained in waging peace as soldiers are in waging war?


Michael Nagler is professor emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley, where he founded the Peace and Conflict Studies Program and Founder/President of the Metta Center for Nonviolence. He is the author of The Nonviolence HandbookThe Third Harmony: Nonviolence and the New Story of Human Nature, and several other books. Michael is one of the most respected scholars and advocates for nonviolence worldwide.
