Shakespeare Behind Bars–Luther Luckett Correctional Complex in La Grange, Kentucky, was meant to hold 400 prisoners, but there are now 1,100 men there. The warden believes that the inmates need to be prepared for their re-entry into the world. Some 60 programs are offered at the prison including "Shakespeare Behind Bars," an inmate-acting ensemble that has been doing an annual production for seven years. In this film, we are introduced to the inmates, many of them serving long sentences for serious crimes, through rehearsals and personal interviews. The soul-searching of these men comes across as genuine; the acting provides them with a catharsis that is both healing and hopeful. $3, free for Mesilla Valley Film Society members. 1:30 p.m., Fountain Theatre, 2469 Calle de Guadalupe, 524-8287 / 522-0286, www.fountaintheatre.org.
