(2008) dir Jenny Phillips, Andrew Kukura, Anne Marie Stein [76 min]
Donaldson Correctional Facility, an overcrowded, violent maximum-security prison, the end of the line in Alabama’s prison system, is dramatically changed by the influence of an ancient meditation program. For some of the over 1,500 prisoners, many of whom will never again know life in the outside world, a spark is ignited when Donaldson hosts an extended Vipassana meditation retreat. 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 as they enter into this arduous and intensive program.
