Trailer Watch: The Dhamma Brothers

A trailer for The Dhamma Brothers, a documentary about 36 prisoners with life sentences who undergo a 10-day Buddhist retreat and the controversy that it sparked — about whether it was successful and the propriety of teaching Buddhism to prisoners in the Bible Belt. Not having seen it, I can’t say much about it, save that it looks very interesting.

The Dhamma Brothers is now playing in San Francisco and will hit LA, Seattle, Boston and Portland, Oregon, in the coming weeks. The official website provides dates and locations.
