“The House I Live In” At Cable Car Cinema

the-house-i-live-in In light of recent progress being made on the national front regarding marijuana reform, this documentary about the failed war on drugs could hardly have come at a better time. Let’s broaden the discussion and keep the momentum going on this topic.

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 the last forty years, the War on Drugs has cost $1 trillion, accounted for more than 45 million arrests, made America the world’s largest jailer, and damaged poor communities at home and abroad. Yet for all that, drugs are cheaper, purer, and more available today than ever before. Filmed in more than twenty states, “The House I Live In”, captures heart-wrenching stories from individuals at all levels of America’s War on Drugs.

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival. Directed by Eugene Jarecki.

Held over through Wednesday, November 21, Cable Car Cinema, 204 South Main Street, 272.3970
