We get invited to a TON of movies but I am not sure if you guys want us to review film. Can’t wait to see this one. We can greatly appreciate when black celebrities use there money and sphere of influence to educate others. Brilliant work..The House I live InWinner: Sundance 2012 Documentary Grand Jury Prize.Now opening on October 12th in Los Angeles. October 5th New York opening remains the same.Filmed in more than twenty states, THE HOUSE I LIVE IN captures heart-wrenching stories from individuals at all levels of America’s War on Drugs. From the dealer to the grieving mother, the narcotics officer to the senator, the inmate to the federal judge, it offers a penetrating look inside America’s longest war, laying bare its ominous inner workings and profound human rights implications.While recognizing the seriousness of drug abuse, the film investigates the tragic errors and shortcomings that turned a matter of public health into a criminal justice opportunity, earning the United States the dubious distinction of being the world’s leading jailer and giving rise to a vast industry of mass incarceration that feeds upon the lives of poor and minority Americans. Digging deeper, the film examines how political and economic corruption over forty years have perpetuated the War on Drugs despite persistent and recurring evidence of its moral, economic, and practical failures.Directed By: Eugene JareckiProduced By: Eugene Jarecki and Melinda ShopsinExecutive Produced by: Danny Glover, Nick Fraser, John Legend, Russell Simmons, and Sally Jo FiferRunning Time: 108 minutes Rating: Not RatedDistributed by AbramoramaOfficial Website: www.thehouseilivein.org
