SOCIAL CINEMA: STORIES OF STRUGGLE & CHANGE
"THE HOUSE I LIVE IN"
Marquee Theater, Union South, 1308 W. Dayton St.
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 7PM
As America remains embroiled in conflict overseas, a less visible war is taking place at home, costing countless lives, destroying families, and inflicting untold damage on future generations of Americans. Over forty years, the War on Drugs has accounted for more than 45 million arrests and made America the world’s largest jailer, yet drugs are cheaper, purer, and more available today than ever before. THE HOUSE I LIVE IN is a powerful award-winning documentary on the failed war on drugs and the devastation it has wreaked on American communities.
