 The War on Drugs has never been about drugs.

Free film screening with discussion to follow.


The House I Live In, winner of the Grand Jury Prize for documentary film in the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, explores the effects of the war on drugs on U.S. society and, especially, on poor communities and people of color. Filmed in more than twenty states, it includes perspectives from people at all levels of the war on drugs, from the dealer to the grieving mother, the narcotics officer to the senator, the inmate to the federal judge.

The film is 108 min. long and will be followed by a short discussion. However, students who cannot stay for the entire event are still strongly encouraged to attend as much of the event as possible, as long as they enter and exit the theater quietly.

Faculty who would like to bring a class to the event should contact Cindy Konrad at konradc@uww.edu as soon as possible. 
 
Sponsored by the Warhawk Connection Center, Latinos Unidos, and Black Student Union.
