"The House I Live In" is an important new documentary about the failed War on Drugs. It's now in theaters -- and features FAMM President Julie Stewart. Check out the trailer below:
This review of the film from The Economist notes something that FAMM has known for years: the individual stories of impacted people are the most powerful persuaders for change.
What one remembers at the end of the film are not the statistics or the policy arguments, but the people: Nanny Jenner, a black woman from Virginia who worked for Mr Jarecki’s family and whose son was an intravenous drug-user who died of AIDS; Shanequa Benitez, a shaven-headed petty drug dealer from New York with glittering eyes and a winning Artful Dodger appeal; and Kevin Ott, an inmate in Oklahoma serving life without parole for three ounces of meth—an amount that could fit in a small envelope. They are the casualties of this long and pointless war.Here's a list of upcoming showtimes around the country. Tell your friends and bring a crowd! Everyone needs to see this film.
