Upcoming Events At This Venue
February 7, 2015
The End-Mass-Incarceration Group from UUCCI will host a special screening of the thought-provoking documentary, The House I Live In at Bartholomew County Public Library Red Room on Saturday, February 7, 1:00 pm.
Immediately following the screening, the group will host a discussion of the film.
Since the 1970s the war on drugs has accounted for 45 million arrests and has cost more than $1 trillion. As a result, the United States has become the world’s largest jailer, and the high volume of drug arrests have destroyed low-income communities, creating a vicious cycle that must be stopped. Written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Eugene Jarecki, The House I Live In offers a poignant look inside US drug policy and its far reaching impact. Executive Producers include Danny Glover, John Legend, Russell Simmons, and Brad Pitt. The film won the prestigious Grand Jury Prize at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
