America's War on Drugs has accounted for more than 45 million arrests, made America the world’s largest jailer, and damaged poor communities at home and abroad. Yet drugs are cheaper, purer, and more available today than ever before. The House I Live In captures the heart-wrenching stories at all levels of the War on Drugs. From the dealer to the grieving mother, the narcotics officer to the senator, the inmates to the federal judge, the film offers a penetrating look inside America's longest war and reveals its profound human rights implications. Award-winning Director Eugene Jarecki will be there for Q&A!
