The House I Live In

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 20 AT 5:30PM | FREE ADMISSION

Part of the Art for Justice Film Series presented by The University of Arizona Poetry Center.

For the past 40 years, the war on drugs has resulted in more than 45 million arrests, $1 trillion dollars in government spending, and America’s role as the world’s largest jailer. Yet for all that, drugs are cheaper, purer, and more available than ever. Filmed in more than twenty states, The House I Live In captures heart-wrenching stories of those on the front lines — from the dealer to the grieving mother, the narcotics officer to the senator, the inmate to the federal judge — and offers a penetrating look at the profound human rights implications of America’s longest war. “Persuasively urgent…[The House I Live In] is an insistently personal and political look at the war on drugs and its thousands of casualties.”
