Excellent. Thanks for the recommendation. Sounds like
a good show.

Just to let you know - I called the theater yesterday.
They are opening a new movie today which is bumping
out The Dhamma Brothers.

I mentioned this movie at the "Eat Pray Love" book
club meeting, because 
so many people seemed interested in meditation. It has
been picked up 
by Coolidge Corner, and is playing now:

DHAMMA BROTHERS
http://www.coolid...­

Donaldson Correctional Facility, situated in the
Alabama countryside 
southwest of Birmingham, holds 1500 of the state's
most dangerous 
criminals. Behind high security towers and a double
row of barbed wire 
and electrical fence, dwells a host of convicts who
will never see the 
light of day. But for some of these men, a spark was
ignited. In January 
2002, Donaldson Correctional Facility became the first
maximum security 
prison in North America to hold an extended Vipassana
retreat, an 
emotionally and physically demanding course of silent
meditation lasting 
10 days.

THE DHAMMA BROTHERS tells a dramatic tale of human
potential and 
transformation as it closely follows and documents the
stories of 36 
prison inmates who enter into this arduous and
intensive program. It 
challenges assumptions about the nature of prisons as
places of 
punishment rather than rehabilitation and raises the
question: is it 
possible for these men, some of whom have committed
horrendous crimes, 
to change?

Kukura, documentary, 1h16m
