The House I Live In is a film – called the best documentary in 2012 – that “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, the film offers a penetrating look inside America’s longest war, offering a definitive portrait and revealing its profound human rights implications.”

The ACLU of San Diego and Imperial Counties will be showing the film — alongside its producer — for free at Crawford High School!

    “Comprehensive in scope, heart wrenching in its humanity, and brilliant in its thesis, Jarecki’s new film grabs viewers and shakes them to their core. The House I Live In is not only the definitive film on the failure of America’s drug war, but it is also a masterpiece filled with hope and the potential to effect change. This film is surely destined for the annals of documentary history. ”

    WE have to change our drug and immigration laws!!!! It is not humane the way we treat the people involved. Please get to see this movie if you have the free time.
