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.”
