Filmed in more than twenty states, The House I Live In tells the stories of individuals at all levels of America’s War on Drugs. From the dealer to the narcotics officer, the inmate to the federal judge, the film offers a penetrating look inside America’s criminal justice system, revealing the profound human rights implications of U.S. drug policy.
The screening will be followed by a conversation with the director, writer, and producer of the documentary, Eugene Jarecki, and Judge Andre Davis, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. David Simon, creator of The Wire, will introduce the film.
The House I Live In is the winner of the 2012 Sundance Festival Grand Jury Prize for Documentary.
This event is co-sponsored by the Maryland Film festival and is part of OSI-Baltimore’s Talking About Race Series which continues to explore the many different facets of this complex subject.
