Remember seeing this a few years ago on tv, it struck me then. Came across it today again.

2Doc: The Work
Video description translation: "Filmmakers Jairus McLeary and Gethin Aldous follow three men who are voluntarily incarcerated at Folsom State Prison in California. There they undergo a violent group therapy together with the detainees in which addiction, sadness, torn family ties and suicidal thoughts are discussed. This special therapy session takes place twice a year. During four days men from the outside get to know the men inside to fight their problems together. The detainees, including members of rock-hard gangs like The Aryan Brotherhood, act as experienced empathic fellow therapists during the sessions. Their participation in this type of group therapy is not without consequences for their life in prison; at the same time, successful participation affects their possible parole."

In building a statue, a sculptor doesn't keep adding clay to his subject.He keeps chiseling away at the inessentials until the truth of its creation is revealed without obstructions. Perfection is not when there is no more to add,but no more to take away.

Wow. It actually aired on TV ? :o This is good news.

This was :shock: :cry: :D

My brain wanted to comment on some things, I gathered a couple of quotes, and I feel it's useless though.

This is an emotional experience. Raw. Honest. All in the feels. So many things said resonate a lot.

This is a required watch for everyone that :
- wants to get in touch with their demons.
- wants to know what it is to be a man.
- ...

Thanks Grinus for this. Haven't heard of this work before.

I'll gladly continue the discussion once more people watch it.

I would rather have questions that can't be answered than answers that can't be questioned. - Richard Feynman

If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration. - Nikola Tesla

What a touching documentary that goes well with the forum!

Emotional and raw, like you mentioned GB. I'm definitely going to watch it again at some point.

It allowed me to appreciate the work we do here more.

I felt a range of emotions and feelings throughout the film. From feeling judgmental all the way to feeling connected.

Very touching documentary. Thanks for sharing peregrinus.

Thank you very much for this PereG
you continue to amaze me with your knowledge and insight

Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.
