About Beth Murphy

Beth Murphy is a documentary producer, director, author and university professor. In 2000 she founded Principle Pictures, an independent film company committed to giving voice to the voiceless, raising awareness about important social issues, and inspiring education and action through entertainment. She has led production crews to all corners of the world, often in war-torn or developing countries in order to focus on human rights and international issues.

She has produced, directed, written (and in some cases narrated) nearly 20 documentary films for national and international media outlets including The Sundance Channel, The History Channel, Discovery International, Lifetime Television, The Sundance Channel, Discovery Health, PBS, and numerous international outlets.

Murphy directed BEYOND BELIEF, an acclaimed feature documentary that premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and went on to win Grand Jury and Audience Awards at film festivals across the United States. The film had a limited theatrical release in New York City and Boston. For her work on this film, she received the One Shared World International Outreach Award by American Women in Radio and Television. Murphy is now running a nationwide outreach and educational campaign with the film that is intended to start a national dialogue about America’s role in the world, and to explore what our actions say about our values.
