Set inside a single room in Folsom Prison, the award-winning documentary follows three men from outside as they participate in a four-day group therapy retreat with level-four convicts. Over the four days, each man in the room takes his turn at delving deep into his past. The raw and revealing process that the incarcerated men undertake exceeds the expectations of the free men, ripping them out of their comfort zones and forcing them to see themselves and the prisoners in unexpected ways.
The film sets the scene for a BMT experience that weaves together poetry, music and discussion to explore the themes of redemption, toxic masculinity and the power of vulnerability, through the lens of the black male experience. Join us for an electric evening as we plumb the depths. Following hot on the heels from our last sold out show; this is one not to be missed.
