ROCKLAND — A showing of the movie "The Work" (2017, USA), featuring the work of the Inside Circle being conducted with prisoners in New Folsom Prison in California, will be held at the Strand Theatre, 345 Main St., on Sunday, Oct. 13, at 2 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public.

The movie will be followed by a panel discussion led by Steve Spitzer, founder of the Jericho Circle Project, which conducts similar work in Massachusetts’ prison facilities. Panelists include Bruce Noddins, founder-director of Maine Prisoner Re-entry Network; Maine Rep. Rachel Talbot-Ross, House Chair on Maine Correction Systems Commission; and Matthew Magnuson, warden at the Maine State Prison. Also participating will be individuals leading a local initiative to start a Jericho Circle Project at the Maine State Prison in Warren.

Jericho Circle Project volunteers create and facilitate men’s circles in prisons to support personal change and the discovery of deeper truth. These circles help incarcerated men to develop tools to come to terms with their inner struggles and bring down the walls that separate them from their loved ones, communities and themselves.

The Jericho Circle Project is a strategic partner with The Mankind Project, a global network of nonprofit organizations focused on modern male initiation, self-awareness and personal growth.
