Screening of Film About Finding Peace in Prison
On Tuesday, January 10, the Prem Rawat Foundation will show a screening of Inside Peace from 6:30 to 8 p.m., at Brookline High School.
“This movie shows an approach that is currently reducing recidivism rates in prisons, improving the quality of lives and making positive changes for society by starting at the personal level,” says foundation volunteer Leah Becker. “Inside Peace shows an innovative approach to a deep social problem that’s uplifting and hopeful.”
The film is based on the foundation’s Peace Class, offered to criminal offenders in a Texas prison whose lives are marked by generations of violence, addiction and poor social conditions. Four years in the making, Inside Peace depicts how the inmates struggle to discover their humanity, improve their outlook and rebuild their lives from the inside out by enrolling in the class. With a supporting cast of fellow inmates, prison officials, experts and family members, the film takes viewers down these men’s difficult roads as they reintegrate with life on the outside relying on the personal peace, self-worth and dignity discovered in the Peace Class.
Cost: $6. Location: Brookline High School, MLK room, 115 Greenough St., Brookline. For more information, call 617-730-2700 or visit InsidePeaceMovie.com.
