The Award-winning Documentary
Inside Peace
Date and Time:
Thursday, October 24th at 6:30PM
(Monticello, NY) – Inside Peace, winner of eight film festival awards, including four for Best Documentary, will have a premiere
screening in Sullivan County on Thursday, October 24 at 6:30PM at the Hurleyville Arts Centre at 219 Main Street in Hurleyville,
NY.
The Sullivan County Human Rights Commission is presenting this riveting film in collaboration with the Hurleyville Arts Centre,
and in partnership with the Sullivan County NAACP, SALT, Sullivan 180, and Health Promotion Strategies. Inside Peace
focuses on several hardened offenders doing time at the Dominguez State Jail, it offers a rare look, not only about life inside a
correctional facility, but inside the hearts and minds of the men featured.
At a time when the call for criminal justice reform is headline news and the number of incarcerated individuals is escalating in
the U.S. (currently almost 2.3 million), Inside Peace highlights a timely and humanitarian approach that demonstrates how
peace education helps chronic offenders break the cycle of crime.
Filmmaker Cynthia Fitzpatrick has spent more than two decades as an editor for such award-winning TV series as The
Sopranos, Six Feet Under and Sex and the City.
Said Fitzpatrick, “I wanted to share the stories of these individuals I came to know, whose lives touched mine as I watched
them navigate the arduous journey from inside prison walls to their return home, a journey not only of outward release but of
inner transformation.”
The film will be followed by a panel discussion featuring two local professionals, Carol Ryan, RN , and Jim Hobbs, MS
(psychology professor) who volunteer to facilitate the Peace Education Program at Ulster Correctional Facility in nearby
Napanoch, and Laura Quigley, Director of the Sullivan County Center for Workforce Development, who will speak about a
post-incarceration reentry work program being rolled out in Sullivan County.
Tickets will be available online through the Hurleyville Arts Centre website. There is no charge but there will be a donation
option to the Arts Centre to help to cover the costs of running the film and of staffing the theatre.
