Inside Peace with Q&A

An inspiring film with a message for everyone! 
 
Four years in the making, Inside Peace is a feature documentary which focuses on three compelling characters who were incarcerated at Dominguez State Jail in San Antonio, Texas. These three criminal offenders were marked by generations of violence, addiction and poor social conditions. The film provides a window into their hearts and minds as they embark on a journey of personal discovery by enrolling in a Peace Class - one of the few self-improvement programs offered in prisons that was not faith-based, but which instead concentrated on the individual’s inner strength and self-worth. We follow them as they rebuild their lives from the inside out while struggling with society’s roadblocks and dangers.

“These stories bleed through Inside Peace, and they are crucial to it, but they’re only part of what the film is about.  The men manage to take the message to heart, that they have value as people – no simple lesson… This is where, for the viewer, the awe comes in.”
Peace behind Barbed Wire - Robert Koehler, Huffington Post
 
For people affected by adversity of all kinds, or who simply want to better understand themselves, there are solutions that have the potential to transform lives. The “Peace Class”, (the Peace Education Program, or PEP) is one of these, with a proven record around the world in 84 countries and 36 languages.
 
Following the screening, we invite you to address the Panellists who will be happy to provide more information about the Peace Education Program, its implementation, the many benefits to participants, and their inspiring stories of personal transformation.
