“Inside Peace” Film Presentation — November in Ottawa

Français

 

The film “Inside Peace” will be presented Thursday, November 3rd at the Mayfair Theatre in Ottawa.

Focused on several hardened offenders doing time at Dominguez State Jail, Inside Peace offers a rare look, not only inside the correctional facility, but inside the hearts and minds of the men featured.

Shot over a period of four years, the film chronicles the progress of inmates at a Texas prison as they are inspired to explore the possibility of inner change following a Peace Class. Unlike most films and TV series dealing with the penal system, “Inside Peace” presents the inmates in their own voices, and offers a rare insight into the challenges they face once set free again.

In the words of the film’s director, Cynthia Fitzpatrick: “I wanted to show the stories of these individuals I came to know, whose lives touched mine as I watched them navigate the arduous journey from inside prison walls to their return home, a journey not only of outward release but of inner transformation.”
