TWE Radio: Documentarian Sally Colon-Petree On Finding Purpose and Changing the World

By Stacey Gualandi/Feb. 3, 2018

A BRAND NEW conversation on The Women’s Eye Radio with host Stacey Gualandi and Sally Colon-Petree, Dream On Productions founder and the director of Women Like Us. Three Journeys. One Mission. To Change the World.

Sally Colon-Petree poster for her documentary Women Like Us/Poster provided by SallyThe self-taught filmmaker has worn many hats – host, actress, singer, and producer – but now she has found her life’s mission: to shed light on what is happening to women around the world.

Her debut documentary, Women Like Us, is a labor of love that took the mother of two girls to Africa and all over the US. She filmed “unimaginable social injustices young women face,” including sex trafficking, female genital mutilation, teen suicide, poverty and bullying. The timing of the film couldn’t be more perfect in the current #MeToo/Times Up climate.

I met Colon-Petree late last year at a Las Vegas screening of Women Like Us I hosted with Deluxe Version Magazine. It was an opportunity to hear her personal journey and to learn what I – and all of us can do – to make a difference for women across the globe.  Now anyone can host these “Empowerment Forums” to promote the film and inspire a call to action.

Listen as Colon-Petree candidly talks to me about her mother’s inspiration; how she overcame trauma; how she “found herself” while filming; and why she went to shoot her next doc in post-Hurricane Maria Puerto Rico.

“I want people to be aware, not to live in fear,” says Colon-Petree.

By Patricia Caso/Sept. 21, 2015

I am constantly amazed at the enormous strides made in science, technology, engineering and math. And yet, as some of TWE’s interviews showcase, STEM jobs and opportunities seem to elude young women and people of color.

I just saw the documentary CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap by award-winning documentary film director Robin Hauser Reynolds (@Rubie226) that not only illustrates the reasons for this disparity but initiates ideas to resolve job parity by employing the very people who are left out.

“I am interested in making films of compelling stories. I am very driven by cause-based films, the ones that can help make change.” Robin Hauser Reynolds

I was very excited to catch up with Robin to find out how and why she decided to explore this inequality…  [Read more…]
