Description

INSIDE PEACE - Official Trailer

INSIDE PEACE is a documentary about three ex-innmates marked by generations of violence and addiction, who attend Peace Classes in a Texas prison. During these classes, we witness their internal struggles to rediscover their humanity, finally understanding real potential for rebuilding positive lives on the outside.

A live Skype Q&A after the screening will give the audience a chance to interact with two of the stars of the film asking questions and making comments.


SOMETHING POSITIVE IS HAPPENING HERE

Dr. Michael Gilbert, Associate Professor of Criminal Justice at the University of Texas, has said:

"Something very positive is happening here. Offenders seem to find understanding of themselves and a personal sense of inner peace, all of which may be needed to break destructive cycles and behavior patterns that have led them time and time again to jail and prison."


PEACE CLASSES IN THE GTA

Peace classes are not just for prisons and are relevant in schools, organizations and resource centres. Here are some of the facilities where the classes have been held:

  • Vanier Centre for Women Maplehurst Corr Facil; Unit 4

  • Annex Retirement Residence

  • Milliken Park Community & Recreation Centre

  • The Centre: Trauma Survivors

  • North York Senior Centre

  • Brampton Senior Centre


AWARD WINNING DOCUMENTARY

The film was screened at 15 international film festivals during 2015. Many of these were invitational screenings. Along the way INSIDE PEACE has won 10 awards including 3 for best documentary and 2 humanitarian awards, plus special category awards for helping to foster peace education among the incarcerated populations in the prisons where the film has been shown.

The film was first shown in London by the British Film Institute and was featured during the proceedings of a panel discussion comprised of leading corrections officials from the UK and South Africa, co-sponsored by the Bishop Desmond Tutu Foundation and the Prem Rawat Foundation.
