The Work

Director Jairus McLeary captured an amazing therapy session at Folsom State Prison in his documentary.

This four-day self-help discussions with both inmates and visitors is so strong and so beautiful. We all have emotional traumas, in prison or not, and these traumas are our true prisons.

It is a nonprofit organization, Inside Circle Foundation, that runs this with CEO James McLeary that happens to be the directors father.

It is not only what happens in the discussions during these four days, with closed and hostile men in the beginning and gentle and open men in the end. Even afterwards it continues to have effects. The rate for recidivism for Inside Circle Foundation is zero; whilst the average rate for Californa inmates is 65%.
