Inside Peace – September 2018 in Ottawa





Free entrance. Click on the picture above to view the film's trailer.

With great pleasure, Peace Is Possible Ottawa/Gatineau invites you to a free viewing of the multiple award-winning documentary film ‘Inside Peace’, which is being presented at the University of Ottawa by Cinema Academica, as part of the Ottawa Peace Festival 2018

The showing will be followed by a discussion on issues raised by the film. Our guest, hip-hop artist Raphaël Desil (aka Moun Fou), will join us to share his experience of rehabilitation.

The documentary illuminates the transition that takes place within prisoners’ lives after attending a 10-week Peace Education course given at the Dominguez State Jail, San Antonio, Texas. The course seems to have a profound effect on individuals by encouraging them to de-escalate and take responsibility for their own personal situations & lives. 

The prisoners in the film share their insights into the social and emotional forces that sent them onto the wrong path and offer the uplifting message that everybody has the possibility to change their lives around, no matter how difficult their situation. ‘Inside Peace’ follows several of them after their release and shows the challenges ex-inmates face in their efforts to reintegrate into society.

This non-religious/non-sectarian Peace Education Program is being successfully implemented on a global scale at correctional facilities and other suitable venues in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia. Peace Education courses have now been held in 81 countries and 37 different languages. At the end of 2017, over 7000 people in correctional facilities were participating in them.

Please take a moment to review the attached poster.
