Inside Peace follows a group of inmates doing time in a Texas prison as they embark on a journey of personal discovery while struggling with society’s roadblocks and dangers. The documentary features the Peace Education Program (PEP) which teaches people to get in touch with themselves and their inner resources and has proved very effective in some of the toughest maximum security prisons in the US & South Africa. In the UK, the programme has been running at HMP Thameside for over a year with very positive feedback from attendees and prison staff. Several other UK prisons are in the early stages of providing the PEP, as well as various community groups and organisations catering for veterans also use it.
This screening will take place at the Mayfair Hotel, Stratton Street, London, W1J 8LT. Tickets are £20, and early booking is advised.
