Dir. Eugene Jarecki, 2012, 108 min. 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, 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. With Michelle Alexander (Author,"The New Jim Crow"), Shanequa Benitez, Mark Bennett, Charles Bowden, Mike Carpenter and David Simon (Creator, The Wire). Directed by Eugene Jarecki (The Trials of Henry Kissinger, Why We Fight, Freakonomics and Reagan).
Following Thursday's and Friday's screening there will be a Q&A with subject Shanequa Benitez. Saturday's 7:30 screening will be followed by a Q&A with producer Christopher St. John.
