The Dhamma Brothers follows a group of inmates from the maximum-security Donaldson Correctional Facility near Bessemer, Alabama, as they enter into a Vipassana meditation program, an arduous program requiring over 100 hours of silent meditation. The film shows the transformative power of Vipassana and the effect it has on the inmates, who emerge from the program with a sense of peace and purpose.
Following the screening will be a Q&A with Vipassana meditation teacher Brett Morris, who has conducted a number of Vipassana courses at the Donaldson Correctional Facility.
