The Dhamma Brothers: East Meets West in the Deep South

This documentary heads to a maximum security prison in Alabama to examine the controversial (though apparently quite successful) use of ancient Vipassana meditation techniques. The film shows how the emotionally and physically demanding 10-day program of silent meditation has transformed lives within the prison. An American take, perhaps, on the Indian doc Doing Time, Doing Vipassana. Part of the Buddhist Film Series sponsored by RigDzin Buddhist Center. 76 minutes
