From Executive Producers Danny Glover, Brad Pitt, John Legend and Russell Simmons, “The House I Live In”, winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Documentary at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, addresses America’s war on Drugs and 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.” (Independentlens)
