East meets West in the Deep South. An overcrowded maximum-security prison-the end of the line in Alabama's correctional system-is dramatically changed by the influence of an ancient meditation program. Behind high security towers and a double row of barbed wire and electrical fence dwells a host of convicts who will never see the light of day. But for some of these men, a spark is ignited when it becomes the first maximum-security prison in North America to hold an extended Vipassana retreat, an emotionally and physically demanding course of silent meditation lasting ten days. The Dhamma Brothers tells a dramatic tale of human potential and transformation as it closely follows and documents the stories of the prison inmates at Donaldson Correction Facility who enter into this arduous and intensive program.Written by
Everyone that pays taxes should see this important documentary. When we hear about prison and violence there is always a sense of hopelessness. After all, how much more millions and millions can we spend on prisons?
What we have tried over and over has not worked. The prisoners come out more violent than when they came in. There does not seem to be any solution.
This film shows that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. we are so used to over paying for gadgets, guns, high security and over look the simple need of humans. It is such an important film that everyone that runs a prison should see it.
The folks like us that pay for these expensive prisons should certainly watch it. It is that important.
