Film Showing: The House I Live In — Tuesday, March 18, 2014
Time: 6:15pm – 9:00pm
CCV Location: Winooski
Event Location: The Janice Couture Community Room (108 & 109)The film we will screen is The House I live In, the 2012 Sundance Film Festival Grand Prize winner. This film examines our nation’s “War on Drugs” as a follow-up to the two film events on drug addiction we sponsored here in fall 2013. (The Hungry Heart & The Opiate Effect).
Film DescriptionThis documentary shines a piercing light on the political genesis of the US “War on Drugs” and its social impact, particularly on people of color and those who might be considered the “underclass” in America. Featuring interviews with inmates, family members, judges, scholars, prison guards, attorneys, police officers, and researchers, the film exposes the serious injustice our inequitable drug sentencing laws have produced. The American judicial system has the largest per capita prison population in the world; a big reason, which many people do not realize, is due to the fact that a majority of people currently imprisoned are non-violent drug offenders put away for exorbitantly long (even life-long) prison terms due to current mandatory drug sentencing laws. The film argues persuasively that our “War on Drugs” itself is actually causing more harm and damage to our society than the drugs do themselves, and urges us to work together find a better, more humane way to deal with these problems, including accessible treatment. Leading our conversation on this topic will be State Representative Suzi Wizowaty, who also directs a non-profit organization Vermonters for Criminal Justice Reform.
